Long Island Bowl
7:00 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013
COPE (Connecting Our Paths Eternally), a grief and healing organization dedicated to helping parents and families living with the loss of a child, is holding its annual Bowling Event on Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. at 300 Long Island Bowl on Route 110 in Melville, New York.
In addition to being a fun-filled, social event, this is also an important fundraiser for the organization, which does not charge its bereaved parents and siblings for the services they receive, services that are even more crucial this year in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and the tragedy in Newtown, CT. $60 per person includes 3 hours of UNLIMITED bowling, shoe rental, unlimited Hors d'oeuvres, an ALL YOU CAN EAT Italian dinner buffet, soda, coffee and dessert. Sponsorship opportunities at various levels are also available. Registration is available on the foundation’s website at www.copefoundation.org. Proceeds will go towards funding the programs, groups and workshops upon which bereaved families depend.
If you have any questions about the organization or the event, or you wish to volunteer at the Bowling Event, become a sponsor, or donate a raffle prize item, please feel free to contact Karen Flyer at 516-484-4993 or email@example.com.
COPE, a not-for-profit foundation, 501(c)(3), is dedicated to helping parents and families living with the loss of a child. Since 1999, COPE has served the needs of approximately 500 families on Long Island and the greater New York City area by providing emotional, therapeutic and spiritual programs (at no cost to participants). These include parent and sibling support group meetings, individual one-on-one support, alternative healing workshops, and a variety of special programs for clergy and mental health professionals. COPE also runs Camp Erin New York City, a bereavement camp for children ages 6-17 suffering from a major loss. In addition to assisting local families, COPE’s grief hotline and website enable the organization to provide grieving individuals outside of Long Island with immediate support and resources and referrals. Anyone interested in donating to COPE or learning more about the organization can do so online at www.copefoundation.org.
