of the popular Bowl for Kids’ Sake event. The fundraising event resumes after a pandemic hiatus for the
first time since 2019. Executive Director Michelle Hamilton says, “We’re excited to bring back Bowl for
Kids’ Sake this year. This event has a 40-year history of not only raising funds for the organization, but
bringing together the community in support of critical one-one-one mentoring relationships for children in

Bowling this year will take place in three locations this April. April 15 th at Faxon Lanes in Williamsport,

anytime throughout the month of April in Wilkes Barre. Hamilton adds that, “The pandemic has taught us
that the world can be more flexible when it needs to be. We wanted to give our loyal supporters the
opportunity to help support the event even if they cannot make the designated bowl day, or want to bowl at a
time that’s convenient to them.”
