Kids’ Chance of Nebraska to Host Annual Bowling Fundraiser on January 20
Mark your calendars because on Monday, January 20, Kids’ Chance of Nebraska (www.kidschanceofne.org) will host their annual Kids’ Chance Bowling Fundraiser at The MARK in Elkhorn (20902 Cumberland Dr.). Social hour will begin at 5 p.m. and there will be two bowling sessions, raffle prizes, a costume contest, and fun team photos! The cost of a four-person team is $150, which includes bowling, shoes, and eight drink tickets.
The money raised at the event will go towards supporting Kids’ Chance’s mission of providing scholarships to children whose parents have suffered a workplace injury or death. When a worker is injured on the job, workers’ compensation pays the medical expenses and lost wages; however, workers’ compensation does not take into account the costs of post-secondary education for children of the injured worker. Often families who have suffered such a tragedy are forced to care for the injured individual and do not have the funding to send their children to college.
Kids’ Chance of Nebraska hopes to raise awareness on this topic and, as a result, give kids a chance. If you are interested in registering to take part in the bowling fundraiser or would like to make a free-will donation, go online to www.kidschanceofne.org.
