Neosho bowlers raise $5K for kids

Neosho area bowlers have helped make sure more than 260 school kids don’t go hungry.

The 3rd annual Neosho Bright Futures Bowling Tournament drew 36 teams to Neosho’s Edgewood Bowl on Friday, Nov. 1. More than $5,000 was raised for the Bright Futures weekend backpack program, which provides food over the weekend for Neosho students who might otherwise go hungry at home. The bowling tournament is a major fundraiser for Bright Futures Neosho, which assists local students in need of basic things like clothing, shoes, hygiene products and, most importantly, food.

“What a fantastic night!” said Bright Futures Neosho president Lynn Otey. “Thank you to all who participated and to the lane sponsors. Bright Futures success is due to the support we receive from our community. Thank you for helping to make a difference.”

Black Rain Ordnance won tournament team high series (1093), Stewart Pace, of the Meeks Lumber Team, won tournament individual high game (231) and individual high series (424), and Field School Farm Hands won the tournament team spirit traveling trophy. Also, Joe Humphrey, with the Central Crushers team, won the 6 p.m. session individual high game (203) and high series (402); Eric Norris State Farm Insurance – the “Lucky Lucianos” – won the 6 p.m. session team spirit award; Debra Bingham, of First Community Bank Team, won the 8 p.m. session individual game high (170) and individual high series (294); and South Elementary Super Heroes won the 8 p.m. session team spirit award.

See you next year!
