EagleBank Bowl Community and Volunteer Event Set for October 22

The EagleBank Bowl will hold a Community Involvement and Volunteer Information Summit at the Renaissance Washington, D.C., Hotel from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm on Thursday, October 22.

At this summit, interested persons, charities and local businesses can meet EagleBank Bowl officials and staff, find out about the variety of ways to get involved or volunteer with the 2009 EagleBank Bowl, and learn more about the 2009 game and Bowl Week activities.

“This is the D.C. region’s bowl game, and everyone has a chance to get involved, whether you are an individual, group, charity or local business,” says Steve Beck, Executive Director of the EagleBank Bowl. “Last year’s inaugural EagleBank Bowl owes much of its success to the tremendous support and tireless dedication of our volunteers. At this summit, we look forward to welcoming new faces to the EagleBank Bowl community.”
