Way to go, Sleep Country USA! This year’s Pajama Bowl events, the company’s largest annual fundraisers for area foster children, raised over $90,000 (see news here ). Over 700 bowlers participated, and in a PJ Bowl first, a couple got engaged (photo above, CONGRATS to Julie Milburn and Dave Johnson!) at our event in Kirkland. The events took place over two weekends, and the funds raised will go to provide extras to foster kids that are often unmet due to financial constraints, including reuniting with a sibling at summer camp, playing a sport, taking a trip to the zoo, or working with a tutor.
And speaking of fundraisers, I just made a correction to the Metropolitan Market post. Tonight is a sold out private event-sorry. I got so excited I just started typing. There will be a public Grand Opening in June so I'll let you know when that's happening.
