Please join the IFMA Community Service Committee on Tuesday, May 15th for an evening of BOCCE and socializing during the 3rd Annual IFMA Central Ohio Bocce Tournament!  The proceeds will benefit Franklinton Rising!  Guests are more than welcome to join the action.  

Anthony Perry has graciously reserved the Columbus Italian Club (1739 W. 3rd Ave. Columbus, OH 43212) and will run the bocce tournament.  The event will take place rain or shine.

Everyone is guaranteed 2 games, but the format will be determined based on the number of participants. You will be assigned a team at random to maximize networking.  Check in starts at 5pm and games will start promptly at 5:45pm! 

The entry fee is $25 per person.  This includes bocce, food (pizza, subs, veggies, and Italian sweets), water and two adult beverages (beer/wine), additional drinks are $3 per beer or wine.  ALL entry fee money will directly benefit Franklinton Rising, as IFMA has agreed to cover the event-related costs! 

50/50 Raffle- We will also run a 50/50 Raffle at the event to benefit Franklinton Rising!  Please bring cash to participate.

Weather Forecast- We're a couple days away, but the current weather forecast is a 30% chance of rain.  We'll be playing bocce rain or shine, so bring your rain gear (umbrella, poncho, jacket, etc.) and be ready to play.  However, if there weather is severe (lightning), we've made preparations to move the game inside, so don't let the weather keep you away from playing.

We look forward to an evening of spirited fun on May 15th!!!


All proceeds benefit: Franklinton Rising

Franklinton Rising's mission is to help reduce economic and spiritual poverty in the Franklinton area of Columbus.  They invest in preparing young at risk adults to become productive citizens, with careers in the building trades, owning property, and living as Christian role models in the community.

Simultaneously, they turn blighted residential properties into totally rebuilt, modern, attractive, efficient, and durable houses that encourage neighbors, reduce illicit activities and crime, and attract new residents to the neighborhood.
