On Friday, March 9, supporters of the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club filled Milford Bowling Lanes in order to raise money for the organization. Funds raised through the Bowl-A-Thon are used to provide scholarships to youth whose families are unable to afford membership at the club.
In addition to providing daily guidance and mentoring, the Club offers structured programming throughout the year which has supported improved academic performance and attendance of Milford Club kids in local elementary, middle and high schools. According to Van Eyken, the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club provides over $75,000 per year in financial scholarships, which is 5% of their annual budget.
