Our winter Community Involvement opportunity marks the 16th consecutive year that BLOC has committed to adopt local families for the holidays and the 13th year that this effort has been anchored by our bowling event!
Half of the proceeds this year will also go to Charlotte Area Fund, Inc. (CAF) a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 1963 “to do such things as are necessary or desirable for advancing the general welfare of the people in the area of Charlotte, NC, or for educational, scientific or charitable purposes in such area”.
In 2016, we raised over $28,000 and over the years, we have been able to provide needs and wishes to families in need, along with a holiday meal and groceries.
You can support this effort numerous ways. The good news is that you don't have to
choose just one! You can participate in any and all activities!

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED IN BLOC-N-BOWL:
BLOC-N-BOWL BOWLING EVENT
For six weeks leading up to BLOC 'n bowl, teams of four will solicit pledges from friends, family and colleagues that will give to those less fortunate so that we can adopt & help local families.
The signature event is a bowling tournament at Park 10 lanes on a Saturday in December, where all teams bring their donations, bowl and enjoy food and prizes.
$50 per player
Includes T-Shirt, Player Bag, Pizza, Beer, and two games of Bowling.
Payment and collected donations are due
TEAM FEE DISCOUNT
$500 - $999
SHOPPING & WRAP PARTY
The shopping team will be given family profiles, names, ages, sizes, wish lists and needs lists so we can fulfill as much as possible with our donated funds.
We will assemble volunteers at a specified location with all of the necessary equipment and supplies (wrapping paper, tape, ribbons, tags, food and spirits....and of course some tunes)! This is always a ton of fun and the more the help the better!
We will assemble at the member’s house on Saturday morning to pickup and deliver holiday cheer into homes that have experienced little.
This is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences for a lot of our families. Bring your children! Witness true gratitude and genuine smiles.
