An evening of fundraising, frivolity, and fellowship was the signature of Serve the Need’s (STN) Annual Bowling Extravaganza. The fundraiser’s spirited gathering seemed more like Mardi Gras than old and new friends bowling for a cause. The high scorers and “gutter ballers” alike generated such a spirited atmosphere that the bowling pins seemed to catch the spirit as well and just fell down to accommodate the hopeful players’ desires for spares and strikes.
The Serve the Need Bowling Extravaganza at Rainbow Lanes in Clayton was held on March 19 to raise funds for our various programs including scholarships for students attending Johnston Community College. However, the excitement overwhelmingly was seeing our local business, their employees, friends, families and, everyone involved giving of their time in helping to make a difference in our communities.
Since 2008 STN has partnered with churches, businesses, and organizations to provide services to veterans, the disabled. and underserved residents in Johnston County. Some of STN’s projects include Ramp Building, Small Home Repairs, an annual sit-down community Thanksgiving meal, and Project 9 to 3—which supports Selma Middle School and other middle school children. Everyone was a winner!
Congratulations to our high bowler of the night, Gregory Scarbota, pictured here with current STN President, Royal Williams and member Scott Worrell.
