NATCHEZ — The Natchez High School Alumni Association is looking to knock down hunger, one pin at a time.

The first Miss-Lou Bowling to Feed the Needy fundraising event will be from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m Friday at Rivergate Bowl.

With the donation of two non-perishable food items, each bowler will be given a discounted rate of $6 per game per person, which includes shoe rental.

People are asked to form groups of four or be willing to be randomly assigned to a team in order to participate in the bowling tournament.

Corey Isaac, NHS alumni association member and class of 1997, said he always told himself he would make it a priority to give back to his community if he had the opportunity.

“I want to not only be able to give back to my town, but to also unite the whole Miss-Lou,” Isaac said. “We’re just trying to do our best to give back to the community.”

Isaac said the event is about much more about just bowling.

“Even if you don’t come out and bowl, you can still just come out and drop off two canned goods,” Isaac said. “The most important thing is not to bowl, but to give back.”

Isaac said the donations will be given to various food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, churches and other non-profit organizations working to fight hunger in the community.
