(Jan. 28, 2013) -- The UTSA Staff Council invites UTSA faculty, staff, students and friends to attend the third annual "Strikes for Scholarships" bowling fundraiser and silent auction from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday, March 4 at University Bowl, 12332 West I-10, near De Zavala Road. Proceeds will support annual scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students who also are UTSA benefits-eligible staff members.

The UTSA Staff Council is the voice for UTSA staff members on a variety of issues and includes at least one staff member from each vice president area of the university.

According to Gregory Frieden, administrative services officer in the University Career Center and 2012-2013 Staff Council chair, "In 2010, the Staff Council approved to increase the award amounts from two $250 annual scholarships to four $500 annual scholarships to help two undergraduate and two graduate student staff members defray their educational expenses. In 2011, the event raised $2,713, and in 2012, it raised $2,588. We look forward to another fantastic event that will allow us to continue this tradition."

The bowling fundraiser will include a silent auction, giveaways, door prizes and spirited competition. Teams of up to eight bowlers, individual bowlers and families are welcome to participate. Two bowling games and rental shoes are included in the $17-per-person entry fee. Early birds who register and make their payments by Friday, Feb. 15 will receive a special gift bag. The deadline for regular registration is Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Individuals who cannot attend the fundraiser but who want to support the UTSA Staff Council Scholarship Fund can visit the UTSA Staff Council website (select the "Donate" button).
