5th Annual United Way Bowlathon
Lynchburg, VA- This weekend was the United Way of Central Virginia's 5th Annual Bowlathon. They say they had more than one hundred teams made up from area companies and groups and they raised close to 40 thousand dollars. This year's event was sponsored by B&W. The United Way says the bowlathon is one of their biggest fundraisers.
"It's great for the individuals throughout Central Virginia to participate, we have wonderful companies that maybe they can't do other things, but they can participate by bowling in our bowlathon. So it's really awesome the number of companies we have turn out for the bowlathon," said Executive Director Marie Martin.
This was the last fundraiser for their 2014 campaign year. The money will help with education readiness and other programs.
