Bowlers filled the lanes at Greenacres Bowl on Sunday, June 8 for the second annual Strikes for Seagull event.
More than 150 bowlers, sponsors and supporters came out to help raise money for Seagull Services. Celebrating its 35th year, Seagull Services provides advocacy and services to individuals with disabilities and their families, as well as workforce development and employment services for those with barriers to employment. Seagull Services also includes a residence and charter school — the Seagull Academy for Independent Living — for middle and high school students.
Several local businesses helped raise more than $13,000 and made it possible for many of Seagull’s clients to enjoy a day of bowling as well. Gold sponsors were Nozzle Nolen and the Palm Beach Kennel Club. Silver sponsors were Stanley Steemer, Conforti & Associates, Coach Comp and Chilling the Most. Bronze sponsors were Fowler’s Sheet Metal, Holyfield & Thomas Certified Public Accountants, AlergiMed, Gulfstream Insurance and Barbara Nurenberg.
The event included an afternoon of bowling, pizza and soda, balloon animals for the kids, as well as raffle prizes and a silent auction. All proceeds will be used for Seagull’s school enrichment activities, summer camp and the school-to-work transition program.
Seagull Services is located at 3879 Byron Drive in West Palm Beach and serves individuals and their families throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties.
