I promised that I would get in touch with the FPSF team and keep everyone updated the best I can. Their Executive Director Claire took time to meet with me and we talked about the past, present and future. In my opinion she is doing a great job and they could not have hired a better person. I am backing the organization the best I can and I hope you all do as well.
Below is some information about their next public fund raising and awareness event at North Bowl. It will run $25 per person and you must be 21+. The fee is well worth it considering it includes bowling, some snack food, drink specials and a few other perks specific to this event. They are running a silent auction and raffle. If you have any thing you may be able to donate for the auction please let Claire know. Also please help by spreading the word about this event.
