SuperBowl-A-Thon 17 Organizers Recognize 2013 Award Winners:

Organizers of SuperBowl-A-Thon 17, the annual bowling fundraiser for Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition held at AMF Bay Shore Lanes in Santa Monica, held an awards breakfast Friday morning at The Lobster.

On Feb. 1, 124 teams comprising of a total of 620 bowlers converged at the bowling alley between 11 am and 9 pm all in the name of raising funds for the WSHC.

This bowling marathon brought the private and public sectors together with local social service agencies to raise funds for the eradication  of homelessness on the Westside of Los Angeles.

The event netted about $30,000 through sponsorships, pledges, team registration fees, and door prizes – this amount exceeded last year’s net by about $5000.

WSHC is an alliance of more than 30 organizations, public entities, and faith communities committed to ending hunger and homelessness through service coordination, public education, and advocacy.

The SuperBowl-A-Thon perpetual trophy, which begun in 2007 for the Hospitality session, was awarded to Locanda del Lago. Captain (and general manager of the restaurant) Megan Sheehy accepted the award for her team who set the highest score of the day — 792.

The highest individual score of the event was Tony Rodriguez of CapitalSource Bank with a score of 225.

Fire Chief Scott Ferguson accepted the Chief Challenge trophy after defeating Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks by 25 pins, with a score of 135.

WSHC chair Dr. Va Lecia Adams said this year’s event added an online fundraising element for the first time to help bowlers collect funds. This year individual donations generated more than $6500.

The top three pledge earners were Jim Harris of the Santa Monica Pier Restoration Corporation ($1360), Wayne von der Mehden of the Santa Monica Pier Restoration Corporation ($1012), and April Hansen of The Santa Monica Municipal Employees Association.

This year’s SuperBowl-A-Thon was presented by Kiwanis Club of Santa Monica with “Perfect Game” sponsor CapitalSource Bank.

The 2013 “Strike” sponsors were: Downtown Santa Monica, The Lobster, Morley Builders, Santa Monica Convention and Visitors Bureau, Santa Monica Police Officers’ Association and Santa Monica Firefighters Association.

The 2013 “Spare” level sponsors are: Coalition of Santa Monica City Employees, Fairmont Miramar Hotel, Harding Larmore Kutcher & Kozal LLP, Hotel Erwin, JW Marriott Le Merigot Santa Monica, Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, Santa Monica Place, The Haven and Tooley Interests LLC.

Team photographs from the event can be found on the Facebook SuperBowl-A-Thon page, which will soon appear on the WSHC website as well at westsideshelter.org.
