Teaming up to Bowl For A Cause
The Louisville Bar Association will be hosting its annual Attorney Bowl for Kids Sake on February 20th, 2008 at the Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes at 4th Street Live. Participation in this event will serve as an investment into the local community. All proceeds will go to benefit the Kentuckiana Big Brothers and Big Sisters program. Lanes are available at 4:30, 5:30, and 6:45, and teams may have up to six bowlers. It would be great if a team from Brandeis could participate.
