Soldotna-Kenai Women's Bowling Association held their 52nd Annual City Tournament and 2nd Annual Bowl 4 A Cure Tournament March 24, 25, 31, and April 1. Thanks goes out to all the SKWBA members who participated and to our generous local business's for supporting our cause and making this the huge success it was. The generosity of our community never ceases to make me proud to live on the peninsula, and amaze me. This small group of bowling women worked hard, had fun and got rewarded in a manner that is something to be proud of.
SKWBA is a small association with 98 members. Through raffles, bowling entries, silent auction items made and donated, bake sale silent auctions, and pink ribbon items, SKWBA raised $4,769 to be donated to our local Health Foundation for the benefit of local Cancer patients whom need that little extra to make their fight a little easier.
Three division winners were awarded Breast Cancer gift bags valued at $200: Division I, Soni Burzinski; Division II, Kay Roberts; Division III, Ann Huhndorf. Three second-place winners were awarded gift bags valued at 100: Division I, Jan Erwin; Division II, Pam Johnson; Division III, Nina Walker.
