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.

"Well, look what she can do when she really starts to buckle down. All 120 cream colored squares are cut into 2 1/2" squares.
And now CC is going to take a quick timeout because Brianna has arrived for a visit with her mom. Oh, the life of CC and her daughters never ends.
While she has been a member of NALS for 30 years, her participation in your association has been off and on throughout the years due to her children. And it paid off in the long run because now they are her best friends."
It appears as though I'm being created as a raffle item for the NALS of Arizona 45th Annual Spring Education Conference & Awards Banquet.
Yes, this is really me, the quilt, giving you a play-by-play on my creation for you, so let me start at the beginning.
"My creator and your NALS of Arizona President Elect, Christine Clayton ("CC") had the brillant idea one day when looking through a quilting book that it would be a wonderful idea to start quilting again. You see, when she was in high school, she helped her mother make three quilts, one for herself and for each of her sisters. It was one of the few times when she was growing up that her and her mom did something together without fighting. She has always enjoyed sewing but could never find the time to do it while she was raising KC and Brianna.
