(Jan. 10, 2012) -- The UTSA Staff Council invites UTSA faculty, staff, students and friends to attend the 2012 "Strikes for Scholarships" bowling fundraiser and silent auction from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday, Jan. 23 at University Bowl, 12332 West Interstate 10, near De Zavala Road. Monies raised will support Staff Council's annual scholarship, awarded to at least two UTSA staff undergraduate students and two UTSA staff graduate students.
"The UTSA Staff Council serves as the voice for UTSA staff on a variety of issues and includes at least one staff member from each VP area of the university," said Christopher Goldsberry, UTSA coordinator of financial aid outreach and Staff Council chair. "As part of our service to UTSA, the Staff Council awards annual scholarships to help UTSA staff as undergraduate and graduate students defray their educational expenses. 'Strikes for Scholarships' will continue this tradition."
The bowling fundraiser will include a silent auction, giveaways, door prizes and spirited competition. Teams of up to eight bowlers, singles and families are welcome to attend.
Two bowling games and rental shoes will be included in the $17-per-person entry fee. Early registration is encouraged. Early birds who register and make payment by Wednesday, Jan. 18, will receive a special gift bag. The deadline for regular registration is Friday, Jan. 20.
Those unable to attend but who would like to support the scholarship fund can give by selecting the "Donate" button at the UTSA Staff Council website.
