When: Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 12p.m.

Registration/Check-in will be from 11 – 11:45 a.m.

Who: This event is open to the public and there will be open registration the day of the event.  Keep in mind, space is limited.

Last year, this event raised more than $9,000 to help send Veterans to the National Veterans Wheelchair Games.  Erie VAMC is planning for an even bigger event this year.  To participate in the Hometown Heroes Bowling Tournament, call the Voluntary Service Office at 814-860-2453.
