"Bowl for Freedom" Nights to Raise Funds for Veterans Charity

Lake Forest, Ill., May 7, 2012 - Brunswick is proud to support U.S. veterans
this summer through its new Bowl for Freedom Nights, benefit evenings to raise
money for Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL), a national veterans charity.

Beginning in May, participating Brunswick Zone and Brunswick Zone XL bowling
centers around the country will host local Bowl for Freedom Nights. During these
special nights, bowling will be just 50 cents a game and all bowling proceeds
will be donated to BVL.

A 501(c)3 charity founded in 1942, BVL provides recreational and therapeutic
programs and equipment for U.S. veterans and active duty personnel. The
organization's goal is to boost the morale of those who have or who are
currently serving in the armed forces.

"We hope everyone will rally their troops - friends, coworkers and family - and
go bowling at Brunswick to support this great cause," said Jim Fox, president -
Brunswick Bowling Retail. "At 50 cents a game, this is an affordable way to say
thank you to our veterans, and have fun while doing so."

Participating Brunswick bowling centers will host one Bowl for Freedom Night per
month, May through August. Dates and times for these nights will vary by center.
