AMF Helps Raise More Than $63K For Sandy Victims

RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AMF Bowling Centers – including its nine upscale 300 brand locations – hosted a nationwide fundraising event that raised $63,440 for the American Red Cross to help victims of Superstorm Sandy.

On November 18 from noon to 6:00pm, every AMF and 300 bowling center across the country offered a two-hour $10 per person bowling session. $5 from each session was donated to the American Red Cross in support of their relief efforts for those affected by Sandy.

"With so many of our employees, friends and customers  affected by this storm, it was important to us to organize this event in support of the American Red Cross and their commitment to these communities," said Steve Satterwhite, AMF's CFO and COO. "We're grateful to all who came out on November 18 and bowled a few games to help us raise this money for a great cause."

After Superstorm Sandy hit the Northeast in late October, tens of thousands of residents were left without power and many without homes.  The American Red Cross is still in need of help. Monetary donations can be made on their website.
