Peoria Democratic Socialists of America are sponsoring a bowl-a-thon from 3 to 5 p.m. May 4 at Roxy’s Lanes, 114 N. 3rd St., Pekin to support reproductive rights and make abortion more accessible in the state of Illinois.
Money raised will go to the Chicago Abortion Fund which provides financial assistance for anyone, Illinois residents and nonresidents, seeking an abortion in Illinois. Since most insurance plans don’t cover abortion, women must pay the entire, often quite expensive cost entirely out of pocket.
If you’d like to help fundraise, you can join a team or start your own at https://bowl.nnaf.org/peoriabowlathon. All fundraisers bowl free, and anyone else can come bowl for just $10 at the door.
