Three weeks and counting … til Ben’s Bowl-A-Thon.

So I looked at the calendar today and realized that Ben’s Bowl-A-Thon is just a short 3 weeks away, creating a little bit of panic. That’s okay. We’ve been blessed with many generous companies/people in the community donating to our raffle and auction. We have a fair number of registrations so far and I imagine many will decide to come as the date gets closer. It’ll be a fun event – featuring pizza, bowling, raffles, family, friends and face-painting!

If you don’t have your registration yet, please go ahead and do so – and don’t worry about bringing a bowling team of four! We have a few individuals that have registered so will be assembling teams as needed. Here’s the link:
