JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Lakers Disabled Hockey organization will be holding a bowling tournament fundraiser next month.

“We are extremely excited to host this tournament,” said assistant Program Director Blade Ellis. “Not only will this tournament provide the community a chance to participate in a fun activity; but, also contributing to a program that provides all individuals with any type of disability [physical, mental, and learning] play ice hockey at no-cost.”

The Ellis also stresses the key about “developing new relationships” with community members, ensuring new and stronger “friendships” with players, staff members, and the organization.

Although New York State has limited gatherings, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ellis said the event will be “safe to ensure no-one gets sick.”

“We have placed a plan that will prevent anyone from getting sick,” said Ellis. “We truly care about all individual’s health; but, at the same time, we want everyone to enjoy life and participate in activities in a safe manner that will benefit the community.”

The tournament is scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 20, from 11:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. at the Jamestown Bowling Company.
