(Feb. 3, 2014) -- The UTSA Staff Council invites UTSA faculty, staff, students and friends to attend its 2014 "Strikes for Scholarships" bowling fundraiser and silent auction from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday, March 3 at University Bowl, 12332 West Interstate 10, San Antonio, near De Zavala Road.
Monies raised from the evening fundraiser will support Staff Council's annual scholarship, awarded to 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 vice presidential area of the university.
Justin Bingham, student financial aid coordinator and 2013-14 Staff Council chair, says, "In 2010, the Staff Council approved to increase the award amounts from two $250 annual scholarships to a total of four $500 annual scholarships to help two undergraduate and two graduate students that are also benefits eligible staff members defray their educational expenses. Strikes for Scholarships will continue this tradition.
"It is wonderful to know that the Strikes for Scholarships event raises the funds to fully support the four scholarships each year and we look forward to another fantastic event on March 4 that will allow us to continue this important mission."
The "Strikes for Scholarships" bowling fundraiser will include a silent auction, giveaways, door prizes and spirited competition. Teams up to eight bowlers, individual bowlers and families are welcome to attend.
Two bowling games and rental shoes will be included in the entry fee, $17 per person for those registered and paid by Feb. 21 and $20 per person for those registered after Feb. 21. The deadline for regular registration is Friday, Feb. 28.
Those unable to attend the fundraiser but who would like to support the UTSA Staff Council Scholarship Fund can give by visiting the UTSA Staff Council website and selecting the "Donate" button.
