KBMSK Bowling Fundraiser – August 24

The 3rd annual Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen Bowling fundraiser will be held on August 24 from 1-4pm at the Strike Force Lanes in Greenfield.

We are looking for people who will raise donations for their team. Teams can be 4-5 players who will pay a $25.00 entry fee each each for bowling and shoes.  Our goal is for each team to raise at least $650 which will include their $25.00 fees.  Each team will keep score as one player (Baker games) which means the captain will bowl the first frame, another player will bowl the second frame, and so on.

Secondly, we have two  opportunities for your company to sponsor our event and advertise your business.   There are three levels of sponsorship available:  Gold – $1500, Silver – $1000, and Bronze – $500.  We will also offer lane sponsorships to companies who would like to advertise their company. Lane sponsorships are $65.00 for a black and white lane poster or $90.00 for a color lane poster.  These 20×30 posters will be displayed at the end of each lane. Companies who have done lane sponsorships in the past, can renew for $60.00.

We have less than 1 week to raise donations to meet our $20,000 goal before the fund day of bowling on August 24.  Proceeds will go toward masonry repair and window replacements.  Please contact Jill for more details.

History KBMSK Memorial

The soup kitchen was inspired by the spirit of Kenneth Butler who was once a fire chief in Greenfield.  He was a man who dedicated his time to helping those in need through truck-stop ministries, prison ministries, and taking in homeless people. So, when a small group of dedicated people initiated the renovation and creation of the soup kitchen, they felt there was no better person to memorialize than Chief Butler.  Remodeling of the building began in December, 2008, and the kitchen opened its doors to the public on October 12, 2009.  All remodeling was done by volunteers and funded by the community.  The support  of our volunteers and the community continues to be amazing.

If you have questions or are interested in helping out, contact Jill Ebbert at the Soup Kitchen, 317-462-9900, or via e-mail at kbmskinc@myninestar.net.
