HullaBOWLoo Benefits Chattanooga Area Food Bank Jan. 18

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

The Chattanooga Area Food Bank invites the community to attend HullaBOWLoo 2014 at its new location, Track 29, on Jan. 18.  The party begins at 7 p.m.  HullaBOWLoo is the CAFB’s largest annual fundraising event.  The proceeds allow the CAFB to help feed the nearly 160,000 individuals in the community who struggle with hunger.  

Tickets are $75 and can be ordered through Track 29’s website or by calling 521-2929.  Track 29’s ticket vendor charges an $8 convenience fee for web and phone ticket purchases.  To avoid the convenience fee, purchase tickets at the Track 29 box office or the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.  The CAFB tickets are available at 2009 Curtain Pole Road or by calling 622-1800.  The event website is hullabowloo.com. 

Buskers will kick off the entertainment for the evening as attendees enjoy food from local vendors including 1885 Grill, Baylor School, Covenant College, Dish T’Pass, Earth Fare, Marco’s Bistro, Sewanee, Southern Star, Stone Cup Cafe, Taco Mamacita, and  Whole Foods.  Drink will also be provided. 

Guests can participate in the HullaBOWLoo bowl-making tradition, browse the “bowltique”, and bid on live auction items including packages from Track 29 and Riverbend Festival, a beach rental, a night at the Choo Choo, and more.  

After the auction, the party will move to the dance floor with eighties cover band, Rubik’s Groove.

Track 29 is located at 1400 Market St. and the box office is open Jan. 9 (1-8 p.m.), Jan. 10 (10 a.m.–6 p.m.), Jan. 11 (1–show), Jan. 12 (1 p.m.–show), Jan. 13 (10 a.m.–6 p.m.), Jan. 16 (1 p.m.–show), and Jan. 17 (1 p.m.–show).
