Roxbury Lanes & Casino Check Will Help Rotary Club Buy Dictionaries For Kids
Thursday afternoon (Sept. 29) amidst the sounds of bowling balls rollin’ and pins fallin’, the Burien/White Center Rotary Club received a generous donation from Roxbury Lanes & Casino – a regular-sized (meaning it was negotiable and not an Ed McMahon-style oversized prop) check for $1,726 – as a donation for the club’s 3rd Grade Literacy program.
The donation will go towards purchasing brand new hardcover dictionaries that will be given out by the Rotary to 3rd graders in the area.
“We like to think of ourselves as the ‘Education Service Club,'” said Club President Bob Wray. “Part of our mission is to help local kids get a better education, and donations like this really help.”
This is the first year that Roxbury Lanes has donated, and Wray was impressed with their generosity.
There are 25 members of the Burien/White Center Rotary Club, which meets every Thursday at 12:30 p.m. at Angelo’s Restaurant in Burien.
