Realtors And Friends Flock To Charity Event 2009: Bowling Charity

Realtors and friends flock to charity event

Bowling for Charity suits members of the Western Wayne Oakland County Association of Realtors just fine.
That’s just what WWOCAR members and such affiliated members as bankers did the evening of Wednesday, May 6, at Merri-Bowl Lanes on Five Mile in Livonia. They took over nearly all 40 lanes to raise money for Sweet Dreamzzz Detroit, a nonprofit which teaches children all about the importance of a good night’s sleep. “Isn’t it amazing” Dale E. Smith, WWOCAR executive vice president, said of the strong response. “When you ask people to come out, they help. It’s just amazing that people come through for the kids.” Farmington-based WWOCAR has a committee that chooses a charity to help each year, he said, focusing on lower-profile efforts like schools. They can provide close to a year’s worth of funding from the WWOCAR event. May 6 brought out 115-120 bowlers. Connie Murrah, WWOCAR accounting manager, organized the Bowling for Charity benefit. She noted participants enjoyed the $25 three-game, 9-pin no tap event, including pizza and pop. “It’s a great place for them to network,” Murrah said. “They like to do things with children,” she said. “The Realtors really like to get behind those kinds of charities.”
“It’s a great benefit,” Murrah added. “It’s always a great turnout.” Organizers appreciate all who contributed to its success.
