The lanes were thundering!
The pins were cracking!
And the gutters were trembling!
Last Sunday, our team turned out to support autism awareness at the Good Friend Inc. Hoa Aloha Bowling event
. This was the fifth year in a row that we supported the cause, and we had our largest turnout ever. Thirty-three of us CPI staffers donned grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts, and leis as we bowled the afternoon away.
Good Friend Inc.
is a nonprofit organization local to us here in the Milwaukee, WI area. The organization provides local schools with autism awareness activities. It was founded with the intent of helping kids learn to be better friends to those on the spectrum. Good Friend has won local and national awards for its videos and seminars.
We are especially proud of our very own Lesley Rynders, who walked away with the prize for most gutter balls. Way to go, Lesley! I bowled a career-high 260 . . . series. Woo-hoo for me! And Eric Brooks walked away with the coveted CPI Bowler of the Year award.
Thanks to all who participated and made this a great day for a great cause.
