Super Sunday bowling tournament raises money for ‘Make A Wish’
‘Strike for a Wish’
LOCK HAVEN — It may have been Super Bowl Sunday, but it was also a Super Sunday for the 5th Annual “Strike for a Wish” Doubles Bowling Tournament at Clinton Lanes.
With a record number of 70 teams and a three-game tournament record of 887 bowled by Rob Askins of Lamar, Tim Eggler of McElhattan along with Askins took the event championship.
Six local children have had their wishes come true over the past five years through the Make-A-Wish Foundation affiliated with Clinton Lanes, four of which were through this annual event.
Since then, with the generosity of the community and local businesses along with the help of the Lock Haven Moose, this event has raised over $11,000 in its short history, including an amazing $2,069 in this year’s event.
This event was created by Dakotah Miller of Loganton over four years ago as a senior project at Central Mountain High School for his brother Kyler, a senior at Central Mountain and a wish recipient, who battles Neurogenic Bladder Dysfunction.
Two local high school seniors, Alex Wegener of Central Mountain, and Katlyn Lightcap of Sugar Valley, helped put this year’s event together as their senior project.
Placing in the top 10 after Askins/Eggler were second, tie, Avery Milanese/Isaac Toner and Sarah Pepperman/Shawn Pepperman; fourth, Gary Eggler/Jared Homan; fifth, Tim Olmstead/Buff Kelley; sixth, Dade Splain/Rusty Splain; seventh, Dave Dorma /Woody Duck; eighth, Chris Heisley/Jimmy King; ninth, Tim Olmstead/Kayla Zimmerman, and 10th, Gary Eggler/Eric Winslow.
