Rock-N-Bowl II fundraiser scores big for Village Food Project

Rock-n-Bowl chairman Allison Pohlkamp with VFP director Barb Harrell.

Rock-N-Bowl II raised approximately $3,400 for the Village Food Project on Jan. 28 at Bay Lanes. In its two years, the Rock-N-Bowl event has raised nearly $7,000 towards this deserving cause. The Westshore community is blessed with caring, generous people.

Over 240 people gathered at Bay Lanes for an evening of music, dancing and bowling. Money was raised through admission prices. Additionally, Sunnyside Toyota of North Olmsted owner and Bay resident Kirt Frye generously presented a check for $2,500. Toyota Motor Sales USA matched Sunnyside's donation with a check for $2,500. In total, about $8,400 in proceeds were delivered to the Village Food Project for the evening. 

DDK was the opening musical act comprised of Bay residents Keven Blake, Dave Lowery and Avon resident Dave Marlette.

Bay resident Randy Geise entertained the crowd with his Delmar Everheart "redneck" routine.

The Feedbacks closed the evening with two hours of great rock 'n' roll. Cancer survivor Dave MacAskill of Bay is the lead singer and assists in organizing and promoting the event, as does Keven Blake of DDK.
"Mark Nazario and his staff at Bay Lanes worked very hard to ensure the facility was in tip-top shape and our generous guests were given first class customer service," said organizer Scott Pohlkamp. "The entertainment was grade A. We are very appeciative of the musicians who donated their evening and waived their usual fees for the sake of the Village Food Project. We are also thankful of the organizational efforts of Allison Pohlkamp, Village Food Project director Barb Harrell and other volunteers who helped organize the event."
