A cosmic bowling event featuring three games of bowling, shoe rental, food, beverages, lots of fun and prizes and auction items donated by locally owned businesses. There are two sessions to choose from 1p.m. and 7p.m. Registration forms and on-line registration are available at our website. Register before July 1, and be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a 32-inch flat screen TV. This year’s beneficiaries are the Survive and Thrive Program at Children’s Mercy Cancer Center and the Catch a Break Fund at the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Association. In the last fiscal year, 39 Douglas County children were treated at Children’s Mercy for childhood cancer (up from 33 the previous year). In 2013, the Catch a Break Fund assisted an average of 10 area families each month, all experiencing financial hardships associated with their cancer fight.
