Turbo adds special on-site raffle thanks to event sponsor Logo Infusion that will be used to fund additional scholarships as part of this year’s Collegiate Expo, which will be hosted at Game of Wickliffe in Wickliffe, Ohio July 11-13, 2017.
Along with being the official jersey of the Turbo Tech Collegiate Expo, Logo Infusion will provide a professionally framed, shadow-box signed replica jersey of USBC Hall of Famer and Team Turbo staff member Carolyn Dorin-Ballard. All proceeds from the $5 raffle tickets will be designated for the 6-Game Audition Tournament held at the end of the Collegiate Expo.
“Logo Infusion has been a tremendous supporter of our event the past few years,” said Turbo President Lori Mraz. “They were very gracious last year coming up with the idea for the raffle, raising over $500 which we awarded back in scholarships.”
“We are honored to be part of such a well-run event focused on some of the most talented junior bowlers in the country,” said Ken Keegan, President of Logo Infusion. “We hope to continue our relationship with Turbo long into the future.”
“The raffle proceeds allow us to reward more players in the event,” said Mraz. “While the scholarships offered from the 6 game tournament aren't a primary focus in our event, it is added incentive for students competing in our showcase, audition event.”
Keegan believes the raffle will definitely be bigger this year.
“This will be a collector’s item for one of the greatest female bowlers of all time,” he said. “With Carolyn representing both Turbo and Logo Infusion around the country at numerous bowling events each year, it is fitting that we present one of her jerseys at the Collegiate Expo.”
Logo Infusion provides jerseys for both students and coaches at the Collegiate Expo. The jerseys are provided to each student based on grade level. Sophomores wear green jerseys, juniors wear blue, and seniors red, making their year of college eligibility readily known to college coaches in attendance.
“Our students love the jerseys they receive as part of their registration,” said Mraz of the estimated 200 student-athletes. “They all wear them during the Audition Tournament and the sea of color is really quite an impressive showing.”
The Audition Tournament is the culmination of two full days of on-lane and classroom instruction with some of the best coaches and professional athletes in the sport. Turbo’s team of certified coaches and professionals include PBA and PWBA Champions, Hall of Famers and USBC Certified Coaches.
Registration officially closes May 31, and spots are filling quickly for the maximum capacity of 210 players. Students should be enrolled in High School grades 10-12 for 2017-2018 school year, or be a 2017 graduate. A minimum entering average for boys of 190 and girls of 175 is suggested for greatest recruiting consideration.
