On April 26, 27 and 28, 189 bowlers on 38 teams raised $21,636.46, besting the goal of $20,000 for TrueMentors at TrueNorth’s annual Bowlapalooza 2018 fundraising bowl-a-thon at The Commons of Fremont in Fremont.

There are currently 26 community-based and 12 site-based mentoring pairs active in Newaygo County, with a number of youth waiting for a mentor. All proceeds from this event go directly toward recruiting, enrolling and pairing adult volunteer mentors with children needing them most. The event is all about kids. The more donations bowlers raise, the more children will benefit by having a mentor in their lives.

This year, the event featured a tailgate party theme and most bowlers came adorned in their favorite team’s colors.  The team from Fremont Insurance was the top fundraising team, and for the second year in a row, Billy Mayle was the top individual fundraiser winning a Newaygo County Shopping Spree. The staff at TrueNorth also sent a enough teams to fill a time slot, and raised almost $7,000 for the event! Of course – none of this would be possible without the generosity of The Commons of Fremont. Support your local bowling center!
