Many helped raise funds to battle breast cancer PDF Print E-mail

Letter to the Editor:

The Ladies Night Out Bowling League hosted its 10th annual fundraiser Strike Out Cancer at Eagle Lanes Saturday, Feb. 15,  in Eagle River to raise money for Marshfield Clinic for  breast cancer research.

There were 111 bowlers who bowled and enjoyed knocking down pink pins, participating in raffles and a silent auction, including a Green Bay Packers football silent auction, and buying pink ribbon cookies.

All the participants  helped us realize our goal of $10,000, with money still coming in to support this cause.

There is a tremendous amount of work involved in making an event like this successful, and not many people know who was behind the scenes. Those on the committee were Kathy Lyczak, Pat Mayo, JoAnn Bathel, Carol Long, Tina Lesnick, Carol Kubiaczyk, Maxine Drager, Caron Stegemann, Bev Dietz and Kim Schaffer of Toffee for You. Marilyn Will sang the national anthem during the opening ceremony. Many from the Ladies Night Out League bowled and supported this event.

This fundraiser could not be done without the many lane sponsors and many business donors. They are appreciated very much.

This event has been held for 10 years and the Ladies Night Out Bowling League wants to express our gratitude to all in the community who made generous donations, bowled in it this year and in the past, and whose support is vital to helping us in our promise to help end breast cancer forever.

Together we can make a difference and help end this disease.
