2015 Bowl for Kids' Sake 



Bowl For Kids Sake was a great success and everyone had a great time! We raised $6820. Thank you to our sponsors: Collum, Wofford and Assoc., James Avery Jewelry, Heritage Investments, Caroline Randall, Pioneer Bank Texas, Kerrville Daily Times, Comanche Trace, HEB, The Law Office of Robert J. Parmley, Sunbelt Securities and Joe W. Pilkenton.

Since the bowling alley in Kerrville is closing at the end of this month, that may have been our last Bowl For Kids Sake. It was a nice note to go out on but we have something big planned for the fall to hopefully take its place. Stay tuned for more information!
