Members of the Pennsylvania & Delaware Valley Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) spared no effort in August when they hit the lanes to raise money for a good cause.
More than 60 bowlers competed at two bowling alleys — Laurel Lanes in Mt. Laurel, NJ, and Whitaker Lanes in East Norriton, PA —in the fund-raiser benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Philadelphia Region. There were strikes, spares and laughter in abundance as the CAI members gathered in the charitable effort. The twin CAI events were sponsored by Alliance Association Bank, Hyland Levin Attorneys at Law, RS& Co., Hill Wallack LLP, and American Asphalt.
By the time the last ball rolled its way down the lane, the CAI chapter had raised $1,000 to donate to this worthy cause.
The vision of RMHC is to be “the catalyst to create a world where children have access to quality health care and their families are able to better comfort and support them while actively participating in their care.” To most Americans, the charity is best known for its Ronald McDonald House facilities that offer families “a home away from home”, close to their hospitalized children. RMHC of Philadelphia supports four houses in Philadelphia, Delaware and Southern New Jersey. They are among the more than 350 Ronald McDonald Houses located around the world.
