CIVIC AND COMMUNITY LEADERS, INCLUDING “PRESIDENT OBAMA”, PARTICIPATE IN DEDICATING THE NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART BOWLING LANES
STUDIO CITY, CA – August 5, 2015 – PINZ Bowling Center, where the stars come out to play, dedicated a $250,000 revitalization of its 32 lanes earlier today. Participating in the honorary first bowl, which “busted the ribbon” across the new lanes, were a host of civic and community leaders, in addition to a special appearance by “President Obama”. The festivities at the bowling center, which is located at 12655 Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, CA, took place from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
“Our new lanes are manufactured by QubicaAMF, based out of Richmond, VA, and feature the very latest technology, allowing bowlers of all levels the opportunity to show their stuff,” said Scott Frager, PINZ’ general manager. The afternoon revelry included refreshments, mingling with VIPs, and opportunities to win prizes, such as free bowling, PINZ merchandize and gift cards, and Dodgers tickets.
Today’s celebration also included the launch of a new community-focused program, “Bowling Birthdays Are Best!”, which is aimed at enriching the lives of less fortunate children and families in the San Fernando Valley. “We provided each of our guests with a complimentary raffle ticket and encouraged them to buy more, and donated all of the proceeds to our community partner, LA Family Housing (LAFH), which provides much needed shelter for children and families in crisis.” PINZ also hosted a complimentary birthday party for the children served by LAFH who have birthdays in August, with the inaugural event taking place immediately following the lanes dedication. “We will selectively continue to sponsor this free birthday party program during the year,” he continued.
