One is a bowling fundraiser sponsored by PowerVRS, which is a deaf-owned local VRS business. You can see the flyer in the previous post. It'll be on November 21st, on a Sunday, starting at 1 PM! $25 dollars will include: rental shoes, two games, two slices of pizza, soda. There will be 50/50 raffles and prizes as well. This will be at:
