This annual CF fundraiser was held on October 13th from 12:30pm to 3:30pm at Leilani Lanes in Seattle. Last year, we created Rack Attack!, a team dedicated to throwing strikes, raising money and eating curly fries, not necessarily in that order. That inaugural team consisted of Robert, Carol, Tori and Jan Contento. This year it was just us three, but we plan on more people knocking down more pins in 2002.
While Great Strides is our main fundraising venture, each person that raises $50 gets to bowl for free, so that's reason enough for us. We don't actively seek donations, but we encourage people to come swing their balls for a worthy cause. This year's event brought in almost $5,000 for CF research.
This year's event was highlighted by Tori bowling a strike and averaging 74 pins a game without using the bumpers.
