Bowling Fundraiser at North Bowl Lounge 'n Lanes

2011 Bowling Event

On September 24th, 115 people attended the Annual Fundraiser at North Bowl Lounge 'n Lanes. The attendees ranged in age from 10 weeks to 82 years old (neither bowled). It was a wonderful venue and everyone enjoyed themselves. The food was delicious and the menu quite unique. The auction items and raffles raised an extra $1500 and the bowlers were really 'getting into" their matches. The event was attended by many of Kate's and Michael's classmates and a good time was had by all. Thanks to the generosity of so many supporters, the Bowling Event and the ad book raised over $59,000.

2010 Bowling Event

On Saturday October 16th, the Kate Svitek Memorial Foundation bowled into full gear with a fun-filled evening at North Bowl Lounge n’ Lanes in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. An impressive crowd attended the creative fundraising event which was “striking” and action paced. The retro setting sixties d├ęcor provided the perfect backdrop to the night and prompted some great memories for the older set whose attendance was enhanced by the record breaking number of twenty and thirty somethings. The supporters of KSMF were able to test their skills at bowling, air hockey, foosball and video games and to enjoy the great appetizers, dinner and chocolate fountain dessert. Guests intently focused on the numerous large screen TVs to watch a key Phillies playoff game. Happily, the strikes on the lanes were met with greater enthusiasm and fueled the energy and success of the evening. The silent auction and raffle items helped raise an extra $2500 making the grand total for the event and ad book over $65,000. Thanks to the many volunteers who helped make this event a fabulous new tradition. We hope you will practice your bowling skills in preparation for next year’s event so that you will be “spared” from humiliation!
