On Friday, March 15 supporters of the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club packed the Milford Bowling lanes for the 2013 annual Bowl-A-Thon event. With every lane filled with bowlers many local families and businesses enjoyed a fun night out for a great cause. This year’s event was the largest and most successful Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club Bowl-A-Thon to date.
“This year’s Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club Bowl-a-thon was a great success, over 200 people packed Milford Lanes. Many were literally dancing in the alleys to DJ SoundSations,” stated Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club Board Member and Bowl-A-Thon Chairman, Mark McDaniel. “Our sponsors, participants and the staff of the Boys &Girls Club made this annual event a fun and exciting way for the community to support the programs at our local club.”
The funds generated from this year’s Boawl-A-Thon event will be used directly in The Greater Milford Boys and Girls Club to promote a positive, strong future for the children in the Milford community. On a daily basis the Milford Boys & Girls Club is educating and preparing future leaders for tomorrow as each child experiences guidance, mentoring and other positive influences that help direct the course of their lives. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware also donated an additional 50% on every dollar pledged to the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club for this event.
“I was totally blown away by the level of support we received from the Milford community for our Bowl-A-Thon,” commented Director of the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club, Tod Van Eyken. “The success of the event will enable us to continue to support all of the children in Milford.”
