Madison Area Y's Charity Bocce Invitational Underway
Monday, October 7, 2013 • 6:46pm
The 12th Annual Madison Area YMCA Charity Bocce Invitational presented by Investors Bank is underway and will continue through the middle of October, with championship finals to follow.
Players are enjoying the friendly competition, camaraderie and challenges of Bocce in the crisp fall weather. The community is invited to watch the teams compete in this old world game under the stars at the far end of the Madison Area YMCA’s main parking lot located at 111 Kings Road in Madison. The Bocce Court is adjacent to the Forum Club. Four matches are played each evening starting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Proceeds from the event will raise funds for a new, free 12-week health and wellness program for cancer survivors as part of the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA initiative. Donations have reached $21,000 since the Invitational began on September 9.
Hosted by the Forum Club, other tournament sponsors include Madison Honda, Rocco's Tuscany Bar & Grill, the Villa Rose Wine School, Realogy, and State Farm in Madison.
To make a donation or for more information, contact Annual Fund Coordinator Leigh Anne Soroka at 973-822-9622 x2232 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
