Jessica Wallace, Staff Writer

On Friday, February 2nd, Michael, and Brandon Dilluvio hosted a ‘Bowlathon’ for their CAS project; a requirement for IB juniors and seniors. The purpose of the IB CAS project is for students to give back to their communities.

The fundraiser was held at Rab’s Country Lanes, The duo raised an estimated $500, which includes profit from raffle tickets that were sold at the event, along with donations from those who couldn’t participate. The funds were donated to pediatric cancer research.

When asked why they chose this project, Michael said, “when my brother, Brandon, was sick as a child, the doctors convinced us that he had some form of cancer. Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was the organization that helped him, so we donated the money to them because they took such good care of him. It’s distressing to see anyone going through this, especially children. I’m glad that the money we raised is going toward such a great cause.”

             The event was well attended with 58 people bowling.  Teachers and students packed the lanes.  Most bowlers were able to complete two matches.

The participants were students, teachers as well as children of teachers. “I was impressed with the organization and it was really fun to bowl with my colleagues and winning the first match was great,” said Ms. Turner.
