9th Get Up and Bowl a huge success

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

The money earned from the 9th Annual Get Up and Bowl for Special Olympics will be shared among Spirit lake Park & Hope Haven North's Special Olympic Teams. Everyone involved had a wonderful day of bowling and bidding at the silent auction. The support the teams received from our community is unbelievable. Get Up and Bowl is a chance for businesses, families, and friends to come together and have fun while helping support our Special Olympics community!

We would like to thank our corporate sponsors: Business Today, Landmark Products, Alliant Energy, Pizza Ranch, IGL TeleConnect, Healthy Smiles, Scout Clean Energy, Godfather's Pizza, KUOO, Rock Solid Masonry and Okoboji Motor Sports.

We would also like to thank Carol and her employees at Corner Lanes Bowling Alley, KUOO, Mike Ross from Business Today, Nancy Vierkant for organizing the event, Inga Hoffman & Lori Haffner for their work on the Silent Auction, the Lakes News Shopper, Godfathers, and Pizza Ranch. Thank you to all of our event volunteers for their time and efforts. The Dickinson County News also helped publicize the event.

A special thank you to the businesses, families, and friends who sponsored teams, donated silent auction items, donated cash, and bowled with our athletes. It was an unforgettable day for our Special Olympics Athletes. Please be looking for the date of our 10th Annual Get Up & Bowl Event in March of 2020.

The Special Olympics Motto is: Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
