7th Annual Winter Bowl Another Successful Fundraiser for The Highground Veterans Retreats

The 7th Annual Winter Bowl was held on Sunday, January 26th, at Rose Bowl Lanes in Marshfield, with a full house present! Over $4,000 was raised to support our Veterans Weekend Retreats happening later this year and to continue our mission to educate, honor and heal.

The enthusiastic crowd enjoyed an afternoon of bowling and lots of opportunities to “throw their name in the hat” to win a wide variety of raffle, silent auction and other prizes! Congratulations to Jerry Leonhardt for winning the 55” Samsung LED TV, donated by our loyal supporter Hardee’s (Colby, Neillsville and Medford), and to John Myers for taking home the Yeti cooler, donated by our friends at Festival Foods. All in all, it was a day filled with lots of fun and cheering in support of our Veterans!

The success of this year’s Winter Bowl depended in large part on the generosity of our sponsors. We are so grateful—we could not do what we do without that continued support.
