Annual Bowl-a-Thon Benefits Kids at The House of the Good Shepherd
May 1, 2017
The 9th annual Kids' Future Bowl-a-Thon, sponsored by A & P Master Images, raised $11,000 to directly benefit the children at The House of the Good Shepherd. The event was held on Friday, April 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Pin-O-Rama Lanes in Utica.
Howard Potter, CEO of A & P Master Images, feels the Bowl-a-Thon is a much-anticipated and enjoyed community event.
"The Kid's Future Bowl-a-thon is more than an event to help raise money for a great cause; it brings everyone together for a fun night out."
For nine years, The Bowl-a-Thon has helped the children at The House of the Good Shepherd by raising funds to purchase school books, holiday gifts, duffle bags, bowling passes, art supplies, music instruments, computers, trips and other recreational activities. Local businesses and families came out for the event to spend an evening bowling while enjoying entertainment like a photo booth, raffles, and a DJ.
The House of the Good Shepherd is a regional provider of treatment services for 770 children and families in need annually. The House operates on 12 sites and offers an increasing number of community-based services.
