Bowling, golf part of hospital fundraisers

ELIZABETHTOWN-While there are still flakes falling from the sky some days and the temperature fights to get higher, some are already thinking about greens and fairways.

At Elizabethtown Community Hospital, plans are already in the works for the annual ECH Golf Tournament fundraiser, to be held in Lake Placid this season at the Craig Wood Golf Course in Lake Placid.

But before that, the ECH Auxiliary is presenting the first Bowl-A-Thon fundraising event at the Willsborough Lanes on Saturday, April 2 from noon until 6 p.m.

"Our fabulous auxiliary is hosting a fundraiser for the hospital at the Lanes, " Jane Hooper, Director of Community Relations at Elizabethtown Community Hospital, said. "This is their first stab at a bowl a thon and we are really excited. People are able to still register for a day of bowling and raffles."

The donation cost for the bowl-a-thon is $20 a bowler.

Also, Hooper said that the plans are in the works for the annual golf tournament fundraiser, which is going through a couple of changes in its 11th year.

"This year, were having 11th annual at Craig Wood in Lake Placid on Thursday, Aug. 11," Hooper said. "The planning committee working very hard already and we know there is grass under the snow somewhere."
