What Is It?

Bowl-a-Rama is a great night of fun for both adults and kids and a great way to get involved and make a difference. 100% of our proceeds goes directly to the Franciscan Life Process Center scholarship fund so we can continue to help those in need of music therapy, counseling and other services that we offer. Due to an increase in clients requesting help for services, we hope to raise $25,000 this year.

How Can You Help?

Come bowl! Your family, office staff or groups of friends can make a difference while having lots of fun! Your $500 minimum sponsorship includes:

  • 6 bowlers, 1 lane, shoe rental
  • 2 Yesterdog hot dogs from Let Us Serve You Catering per bowler, chips
  • Frozen custard by Culver’s
  • A team shirt for each member and 1 team photo

HARPfest 2017 – Harp Blessings – Simplicity, Beauty and Elegance @ Franciscan Life Process Center - Lowell Campus
Aug 18 @ 8:00 am – Aug 19 @ 1:00 pm

Welcome

Each year we bring to West Michigan a clinician who will lead all who come into new dimensions of harp playing.  In the past we have had workshops from some of the most well known and loved harp teachers in the country, including Dennis Rybicki, Rhett Barnwell, Frank Voltz, Serena O’Meara, Sunita Staneslow, and Kim Robertson.  The opportunity to study exclusively with one master harpist for a day and a half is a rich experience.  Come and spend time with Angi Bemiss from Atlanta, Georgia will share her knowledge and love of the harp in HARPfest 2017: Harp Blessings – Simplicity, Beauty and Elegance.

Presenter

“Making it complicated is easy.  Keeping it simple is an art.” This describes the underlying philosophy of Angi Bemiss.  A Certified Music Practioner since 1998, Angi has provided live therapeutic harp music to hundreds of people. She is nationally known as an arranger, composer, and clinician.  Her workshops will include working with chords to create lovely arrangements from lead sheets, exploring the therapeutic aspects of harp playing and learning how to make good use of modern technology.  She will give a concert on Friday evening.

Exhibitor

Kelly Yousoufian, Michigan Harp Center, www.michiganharpcenter.com, will be on hand for your harp needs.  Contact her ahead of time if you have a specific request.  You may rent a harp for the workshop from Kelly. michiganharpcenter@gmail.com 248-288-4277
