TQL Raises More Than $17K For Big Brothers Big Sisters
CHERRY GROVE – Warning: Cincinnati rivalries, stereotypes and bias open this post. Might not be suitable for readers - in the immortal words of cartoonist Jim Borgman - on the other side of Checkpoint Charlie Luken.
Take your Western Bowl - your country club of bowling, your pride of Glenway - with all its 64 automated, air-conditioned lanes and shove it in the gutter.
The east side has bowling alleys, too. When Total Quality Logistics visits one, it rolls big.
TQL raised more than $17,300 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati in the annual Bowl For Kid’s Sake event April 28.
TQLers packed all 34 alleys at Cherry Grove Lanes. Some bowled granny style, some with power, and at least one threw the ball with his right hand while clutching a piece of pizza in his left.
In addition to the pizza, everyone received two drink tickets - this being the east side, not a Hudy 14K or Burger Light to be found – as well as gift bags with Rock-n-Bowl t-shirts, fuzzy dice and more.
Raffles for prizes like an iPad Air and a split-the-pot helped the bottom line for an organization whose mission is “is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.”
This being TQL, competition came into play. The Turkey Baggers from Cincy East averaged 159.4 to take the team title. Chris F. from team Gutterly Ridiculous scored both a 214 and a mini disco ball for his trophy as top male bowler. Samantha C. rolled a 169 to earn top female honors.
