POSTPONED: Strike Out Stigma Bowl-a-Thon

Event Postponed

Our 39th annual Bowl-a-Thon has been postponed. We'll be announcing new dates soon.

Now more than ever, Transitions-Mental Health Association is seeking support for our many programs, including SLO Hotline, our 24/7 crisis line. In spite of our fundraiser being postponed, please consider making a donation to keep our services healthy. 


For 39 years, the Strike Out Stigma Bowl-a-Thon has raised thousands of dollars to support SLO Hotline and other TMHA programs in San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties. This awesome fundraiser is a great way to have fun, enjoy friendly competition, and support mental health in our community!
