Rockford, Ill. – With another hockey season in full-swing, the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, announced details today on their fourth annual bowl-a-thon for charity.

Beginning on Friday, fans can sign up to participate in the IceHogs 4th Annual Bowl-A-Thon and bowl alongside their favorite players. The first 100 bowlers, or 25 teams, to register for the bowling event will be guaranteed to bowl with an IceHogs player, coach, or other team personnel.

Admission is $40 per bowler or $150 for a team of four, and that includes two games of bowling, shoe and ball rental, and a raffle ticket for a chance to win some great prizes, for each participant. Groups of four may pick the player they wish to bowl with, on a first come, first serve basis, for an additional $50.
