Simple Needs GA bowling strikes again!

Attention, friends and bowlers! Join us at AMF Marietta Lanes on Oct. 22 for our latest bowling event. Whether you bowl strikes, gutter balls or something in between, it’s a great way to support our mission and have some fun all at the same time. You could even win an exciting prize in our raffle or silent auction.

Don’t love to bowl? That’s OK—come hang out with us! The money raised from this event will go to support SNGA programs.

AMF Marietta Lanes is located at 565 Cobb Parkway, Marietta, GA next to U-Haul truck rentals.


Bowling starts sharply at 2 p.m. We suggest you arrive by 1:30 to get your shoes, set up your lane and have time to look at our raffle prizes and silent auction items. Bowling ends at 4 p.m., at which time the raffle drawings will be held (you must be present to win). The cost to bowl is $20 per person including shoe rental.

Donations/Raffle: Lastly, you can support SNGA’s programs by providing donations or buying raffle tickets for an eclectic array of items.
