On Wednesday afternoon, Kings in Dedham donated 100 turkeys, weighing 12 to 14 pounds each, to the Dedham Food Pantry as part of the Bowl-a-Turkey program.
Between November 1 and 21, King’s would donate a turkey for every turkey that was bowled. A turkey is when a bowler rolls three strikes in a row. Whenever the achievement occurred, whoever bowled the turkey would have a certificate hung on the wall.
The annual event, now in its second year, was just in time for Thanksgiving and Director of Marketing Doug Warner said that it was a win-win situation for everyone.
“It’s a fun event and our guests have a great time with it because it’s a challenge,” said Warner. “Plus it’s a for a good cause.”
Warner explained that a drop off box will be on display through December for anyone who wants to donate canned goods. He noted that Kings also donated 100 other turkeys to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
Dedham Food Pantry Trustee Bob Samonte commended King’s for their contribution and said that it was a classic case of neighbors helping neighbors.
“I’d like to thank Kings for the generous donation on behalf of the Dedham Food Pantry,” said Samonte. “They are a good neighbor and that is what this is all about: neighbors helping neighbors.”
