A 30 year tradition, the Strike Out Stigma Bowl-a-Thon bene

fits SLO Hotline and other Transitions-Mental Health Association (TMHA) programs such as Growing Grounds Farms in San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties.

The event will span three weekends in March (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) at four locations. Pismo Bowl in Pismo Beach on March 9, 16, 18, 23, 24 and 25; Rancho Bowl in Santa Maria on March 10; Cal Poly Mustang Lanes on March 11; and Paso Bowl in Paso Robles on March 17.

“This Bowl-a-Thon is a great way to have fun, enjoy friendly competition and support mental health in our community,” said Jill Bolster-White, Executive Director for TMHA.

A long-term logo and theme of “Strike Out Stigma” has been created to familiarize this annual event in the future. The new logo was designed by Morgan Bloom, a local graphic artist.

“For over thirty years now this event has brought friends, family, and colleagues together in support of a critical community resource,” said Mike Bossenberry, Program Manager for SLO Hotline.

“Bowl-a-Thon is a chance for the Digital West team to get together, have a blast bowling, and support an incredible organization. We look forward to the event and reminding our friends and family why we support SLO Hotline,” said Tim Williams, CEO/Founder of Digital West and longtime participant.
