KCYN-FM 97.1 Canyon Country radio and Gravel Pit Lanes will sponsor a Bowl For Schools fundraiser tournament this weekend. The event, which is open to participants of all ages, will be held Feb. 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Gravel Pit Lanes, 1078 Mill Creek Dr.

Officials with KCYN said the event was made possible by donations from a variety of local businesses. The tournament will be broadcast live by KCYN-FM at Gravel Pit Lanes. Entry Fees are $10 for all kids in sixth grade and younger, and $20 for all others. Proceeds will go to the BEACON After School Program for Helen M. Knight Elementary School. Stephanie Dahlstrom, director of the BEACON program, said that a portion of the proceeds will also go toward the purchase of art supplies for the HMK art program, according to a news release from KCYN and Gravel Pit Lanes.

The evening will include prize drawings, which will take place throughout the tournament.

“Everyone is welcome to enter the tournament and we encourage parents of HMK students to get their children registered [today]!” organizers said in the news release.
