Knockdown 2012 to Bowl Over Cancer to benefit the Carbon/Tamaqua Unit of the American Cancer Society will be held Saturday, March 3 at Spare Time Bowling Lanes in Hometown. Bowling will be from 1-3 p.m. and the after party will be the same day from 3-6 p.m. at the Batter's Box in Summit Hill.

There is a cost per person, and there will be 4- or 5-person teams (up to 8 persons). The cost includes two games of bowling, shoe rental and the after party.

For those who just want to attend the after party, a set donation is required.

Each bowler is asked to find at least five sponsors. This is not required, just requested as an extra way to raise money.

Prizes will be awarded in a variety of categories including High Bowler, High Sponsorship, Best Dressed and more.

Due to the popularity of this event, pre-registration is required. There are only 16 lanes, those interested are reminded to register early.

Registration forms can be obtained at and returned to the Batter's Box. Any questions, contact Jess at (610) 462-3650
