Twenty two teams participated in the 10th Annual YPN Chill N Bowl on Saturday, February 3rd at Midway Lanes.
The event raised a whopping $2,268 for our 2017-18 non-profit partner, Tracy’s Sanctuary House. The money was raised through team entry fees, games and a 50/50 raffle. The 50/50 raffle was won by YPN member Becca Rattei, who very graciously donated half her winnings back to Tracy’s Sanctuary House.
Four separate contests are put on at Chill N Bowl: chili, costume/team spirit, team name and bowling. Second place winners were given 4 Thunder Alley tickets to Midway Lanes, and winners were awarded a sparkling trophy. A combination of the team chili and bowling scores is calculated to crown the grand champion winner of the Chill N Bowl traveling trophy.
