The Bowling Extravaganza Charity Event was fantastic! There was such a great mix of people from our community and many who came out for the first time to support us. Everyone I talked with is looking forward to the event next year.
The following is part of a press release written about the event:
"Elk Grove Mayor Steve Detrick, Vice Mayor Jim Cooper and Council member Gary Davis hosted the Elk Grove Bowling “Extravaganza” Charity Event benefiting Elk Grove Food Bank Services and Elk Grove Together on Friday, August 26, 2011, at Strikes in Elk Grove.
The sold-out charity bowling event, with 44 teams, was preceded by a reception for the event’s sponsors. They included Brookhurst Development, Pappas Investments, Niemi Capital Partners LLC, Nacht & Lewis Architects, Remy, Thomas, Moose and Manley, LLP, Thomas P. Winn Foundation, RCH Group, St. Anton Partners, Pacific Municipal Consultants (PMC), USA Properties and Cunningham Engineering Corp.
