Bowl for the Kids 2011

Recently, I was asked to join the board of the Community Action Mentoring Program in Armstrong County. This is a wonderful program that provides several different types of mentoring for kids. I joined just in time to help with the annual fundraiser which took place this past Sunday.


The event was Bowl for the Kids, and it was a fundraiser where people get groups of bowlers together, and each bowler gets sponsored with donations. The teams then attend the event, and prizes are awarded to the top fundraisers. There were really amazing prizes, including a bike, Steelers preseason tickets, a zoo membership, and lots of fun themes baskets.

We got an awesome donation of pizzas from Vocelli,

and other people donated lots of cookies,

as well as the use of a popcorn machine (and the time of the man to run it!)

A lovely folk duo came and played.

And everyone had a wonderful time!


I had such a blast watching all the people bowl, socialize, enjoy their prizes, and be so joyful about helping support such a wonderful cause.

I am really proud to be a part of such a great organization.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered time, donated money, supplies, and prizes, and helped make the event such a success!
