Extreme Bowling 2013

Greyhound Bowling event raises big bucks and fun for allalt

Once again AMF Belleview Bowl opened the doors to CGA and allowed us to have our greyhounds with us. A SPECIAL THANKS to Chris Timin and his staff for welcoming us back this year and hoping that we come back next year.

With a total of 99 bowlers (adults and kids), CGA brought in just over $3,300. The Bake Sale brought in $363 because once again the CGA family donated lots of TASTY TREATS for people and greys. Money donations totaled $109 to CGA at the event. The CGA store brought in $993 of purchased. WOW! What a way for Chris and Mike Benedict to end
their time as Merchandise Coordinators.

"A GREYT BIG THANKS for everyone who contributed in any way to this event - bowling, donating an item/money, coming to support another CGA event, bidding/winning auction items, services offered, etc. Without the support of CGA through its membership and friends of greyhounds and what we do, these events would not be as successful as they are. Kudos to everyone for all that you do for CGA as the greyhounds are the winners (as 'FLASH' from MUTTS Shelter Stories said at the end of that strip when he gets adopted 'I FINALLY WON!'). Thanks so much and I hope that everyone had a GREYT time! What a GREYT group!!!" Rori Matson, CGA President.
