11th Annual “Strike it RICH” for Education Bowl-a-thon


We had record crowds & record profits at our 11th Annual “Strike it RICH for Education” Bowlathon!  We raised over $24,000 to support education in New Kent!  This is the most we have ever made and it is due to the enthusiasm & support from our schools & the New Kent community!!! You make it happen every year and we are most appreciative.  We hope all of you had a great day of bowling action and fun while supporting a most important cause.
 
The Bowlathon had a total of 49 teams this year and we were overwhelmed by your spirit and fundraising to support the NKEF!  We would like to recognize our top team for fundraising: St. Peter’s EYC Team (Gunnar Carlson, Clayton Evelyn, Trevor Evelyn, Jacob Wood) brought in $2,505!  The person that raised the most money was Trevor Evelyn of St. Peter’s EYC Team, raising $1,425!  Susan Musselman brought in $804! The team with the highest average score (139) was Crump’s Crew, one of our High School teams, led by team captain Joe Crump. Each member of Crump’s Crew won a Family Fun Pack from AMF.  And the team with the lowest average score (we won’t mention the score) was Boy Scout Bowlers!  Each member of Boy Scout Bowlers won a free bowling pass so they can practice up for next year’s 12th Annual! 
 
For the 2nd year, we had a special drawing for all team members who registered early for the event (by September 6th).  The drawing was for a $250 VISA gift card & Sabrina Dunn was the lucky winner from Living on a Spare!  We also had a NEW INCENTIVE for our 11th Annual which was a drawing for all teams that raised $500 or more with the winner of the drawing, Crump’s Crew, raising $1,679.00!  We had a tie this year for the Donut Competition!  NKMS & NKES both entered 7 teams for our Bowlathon!  Each school will enjoy a morning of donuts of their choice! Congratulations NKMS & NKES!  Also, Lindsay Horne’s name was drawn for the Team Captains’ Raffle & won a three night stay at Cedar Grove, a lovely guest cottage right on Route 249!
