If you read our FREE and Cheap weekend activities post for this week, you may wonder why this post wasn’t included. We pulled this one out separately because the snapshot we give of the weekend goings-on wouldn’t include enough detail to fully explain why you should play hooky with 1070 The Fan at Royal Pin.
From 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Friday, August 8, 1070 The Fan is throwing a huge bowling event at Royal Pin Woodland Bowl (located at 3421 E. 96th Street on the north side) that will benefit three separate charities. If you listen to The Fan often, you’re probably familiar with some of the sports talk show hosts who will be attending this event. The sports guys will be broadcasting live while competing with each other to raise the most money for their respective charities. Here’s the breakdown:
- Grady and Joe will be playing for Gleaners Food Banks
- Dan Dakich will be playing for Wish For Our Heroes
- JMV will be playing for the Indianapolis Police Foundation
So, where do our Cheapsters enter the picture in this big event for great causes? If you play hooky and head to Woodland Bowl, you can bowl or play laser tag for FREE as long as you make an on-site donation to your favorite host’s charity. Plus, 1070 The Fan will be offering plenty of other giveaways. The first group of people to donate will receive FREE shirts, though we caution you that those will disappear quickly.
It’s not easy to find fundraisers that are actually, well, fun. Luckily, 1070 The Fan knows plenty about fun and will be happy to hang out with you as everyone starts their weekends.
