The event has its official kickoff ... and we haven't even donned our super-fashionable bowling shoes or picked out our bowling balls yet!
Employees and attorneys from the law firm of Mesch, Clark & Rothschild, P.C. shared this photo with us, and the news that their office has collected over $150 and a bunch of backpacks and school supplies for tonight's Bowling for Backpacks event. The firm has even sponsored a firm "team" to include a full lane of bowlers (6 people) to show their additional support for Tucson's school children.
What a gesture!! Huge thanks go out to Mesch Clark, & Rothschild's generous folks!!
If you or your firm would still like to participate, there's still time. Join us tonight at 6:30pm at Lucky Strike Bowling Center on Speedway, and we'll fit you in with the rest of the "fun bunch!"
More details about the event can be found HERE. And if you can't join, please feel free to send in a donation. All proceeds will go to benefit Tucson's school children in need from local area schools.
