Strike out Stigma Bowl-a-thon to raise funds for Transitions-Mental Health
–Transitions-Mental Health Association (TMHA) is gearing up for the 38th Annual Strike Out Stigma Bowl-a-Thon to be held March 16 – 31.
Hundreds of bowlers will fill the lanes at Rancho Bowl in Santa Maria, Cal Poly’s Mustang Lanes, and Pismo Bowl to enjoy friendly competition and fundraise for a good cause.
Behind the scenes, volunteers, donors, and sponsors have helped to make this event consistently successful year after year. Bowl-a-Thon is a great way for work and social groups to team-build, have fun, and raise critical funds for community mental health services.
Funds raised will support SLO Hotline and other mental health services in San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara counties. SLO Hotline, in continual operation since 1970, is a mental health support, crisis and suicide prevention telephone line offering free, confidential support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
TMHA has operated SLO Hotline (800.783.0607) since January 2010. It remains the only free service of its kind in the area, providing a critical service to our community. Last year SLO Hotline received over 8,000 calls from community members.
“It has been a particularly precious resource to those that TMHA serves: our friends and family living with mental illnesses,” said Jill Bolster-White, Executive Director of TMHA. “Without Bowl-a-Thon, this service might not exist.”
