2017 Boo Bowl Raises $9,400!

 

On October 27, The Clark County Realtors Foundation and CCAR Affiliate Council resurrected the classic 2017 Boo Bowl and Costume Contest, raising just over $9,400, with presenting sponsor, iQ Credit Union | Mortgage; booth sponsors: National Property Inspections and Global Security; and photo booth sponsor, Dan True.

 

The bowling alley was filled with creative costumes and lots of laughter when the teams took to the lanes at 1pm. There were 30 teams in total with 150 players. In case you missed our posts on social media, Team Jonathan Maxwell took home the team trophy, with an average of 126.4! Congratulations! Darrell Stefani had the highest score of 198 and Deana Nerton with 192. In bowling, the lowest scores always get a prize as well! Those went to Greg Mahlow and Sandy Borchers. Thank you so much to our wonderful volunteers: Sheri Hunzeker, Teresa Munn, and Lisa Thompson.

 

We also want to recognize Matt “The Champ” London as getting the first Turkey! Word on the street is that he went one to bowl yet a second turkey? AWESOME!

 

Although the bowling alley was full of amazing costumes, three stood out among the rest! Congratulations to Cord Speelman (Chicago Title) who took home the Scariest prize, Dan True (Dan True Agency) the Funniest and A League of Their Own (Evergreen Home Loans) for Best Overall Costume. Congratulations!

 

The Affiliate Council brought the Boo Bowl back this year as a fundraiser for the Clark County Realtors Foundation, the non-profit arm of the CCAR. All of the money raised during the event will go towards our 2018 Community Grants Program. A community grant from the CCRF helps support organizations dedicated to serving disadvantaged children, families, and elderly in Clark County. Projects such as purchasing duffel bags for foster children to partially funding a mobile shower trailer for the homeless were among the 12 projects that received grant funding this year. On Wednesday, November 8, we are holding a free, private grant awards ceremony and reception for the grant recipients and our members at the Union Chapel Annex at 4:30 (doors open at 4pm). We invite you all to attend to see how your generosity directly impacts lives in our community.
