TACO Team 3rd Annual PRIDE Bowl benefiting SAGA

Join us for our 3rd year! Come out and help us raise $ for this awesome cause. Celebrate PRIDE and help Southern AZ’s trans community.

Southern Arizona Gender Alliance is a non-profit organization that supports and advocates for southern Arizona’s community of trans identities: transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, masculine of center, feminine of center, non-binary, two-spirit, butch, femme, gender fluid, intersex, and ALL of us who are gender fabulous!

SAGA envisions a society in which transgender, non-binary, and gender-creative people are ensured of their basic rights and can be open, honest and safe at home and in the community. We provide support groups, advocacy, community education, and training for businesses, service providers, and community members on how our allies can be supportive and inclusive.

Tickets are $15 purchased in advance and include 2 hours of bowling and shoe rental. We will also have some great Raffle prizes!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope! If you are over 21 have your ID for the bar!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is a large parking lot with parking in front, on the side & behind

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email jennifer@thetacoteam.org or MSG on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/taco.team2016

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

It helps! But I will have a list.

Can our team have their own lane?

Yes, minimum per lane is 5 bowlers but max is 7. We pay per lane so the more bowlers per lane the more $ we raise for SAGA.

Can I come even if I don’t bowl?

ABSOLUTELY! We only pay for the lanes we use, so if you want to buy a ticket and just be a spectator or cheerleader for our bowlers and enjoy the food, drink & raffle prizes, COME ON DOWN!
