Bowling for…Vitamins?

There are dozens of fun ways to have a sports themed party but when you find a bowling alley with a heart of gold, then add a little “5 Bucks” to the mix, everybody has a good time! On February 9, 2010 about 20 friends gathered to play a few games of bowling. A little negotiating on behalf of the “5 Bucks” team got us a special rate for shoe rental and unlimited play and the bowling alley even kicked in a donation per player. Each of our players brought a donation of chewable children’s vitamins or cash. Why? Because one of our team members is a dental hygienist traveling to the Eastern European country of Moldova to perform charitable dental work for children.
