We believe that no one should have to suffer unsafe living conditions due to money problems. That’s why we’re sponsoring, and partnering with, the organization “Strike Out Poverty” to put on a charity event Friday, April 27th of this year.

The Strike (Out Poverty) & Spare (Homes) Bowling Tournament will raise money to eliminate unsafe and dilapidated homes for disadvantaged homeowners in the Northland. We will be fielding three teams, each of which will be aiming to raise at least $100. So if you want to have some fun and help out your neighbors-in-need, come out and see us at the tournament!
