Sake. Our teams were ready to show off their bowling skills and boast about how much they raised.The bowling scores are not typically great however
we certainly had some exceptions this year!We have raised a lot of money over the years being “Defenders of Potential”, and a corporate sponsor for
the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. It is great to see everyone’s enthusiasm, excitement and want to participate, always coming through with
outstanding pledge totals.
