PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Brothers Ryan, 7, and Jack Clarke, 10, from Portsmouth, attended the New England Revolution’s Bowl for a Goal presented by Arbella Insurance on Wednesday, Aug.1, at Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Patriot Place to support Special Olympics Massachusetts.
Ryan and Jack spent the evening meeting and taking photos with their favorite Revolution players, coaches, and local celebrities.
The players and coaching staff joined Special Olympics MA athletes and Revs supporters not only on the lanes bowling, but they also jumped on-stage to sing some of their favorite karaoke songs including Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye,” and Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.” The evening also featured performances from local country singer Ashley Jordan.
All profits from the evening, including ticket sales as well as the evening’s silent auction and raffle, benefited Special Olympics Massachusetts. This year the Revolution raised $80,000 for Special Olympics, and in the four years of the event they have raised over $250,000 through Bowl for a Goal.
The relationship with the organization extends well beyond the annual fundraising event, this year being the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics movement. The two organizations have once again teamed up for a full summer of events aimed to promote an environment of inclusivity and friendly competition through the power of sports.
