Bowled Over: MN Oncology’s 2013 Bowling for Angel Fundraiser

Minnesota Oncology teams went “under cover” for this year’s Bowling for Angel fundraiser to benefit Angel Foundation.  This year’s bowl-a-rama was hosted by Park Tavern Lanes in St. Louis Park on November 2, 2013. Costumes ranged from Angelic to Zoological and included everything in between.

Teams have been busy raising money at each of our clinics and business office throughout the year. Some of the creative fundraising events across the practice included: Bowling Breakfasts; Walking Tacos; Jeans Days; Hire-a-Handyman Auction; Bingo for Bowling; Soup Sales; Jewelry Sales; Baseball themed lunch and a practice-wide Time Off raffle. Thanks to everyone for opening your hearts and wallets to help Angel Foundation once again this year. And here’s the report from award central!
