This Saturday a small crowd of pug people, many wearing their best pug gear, velcro-ed up their shoes and bowled to raise money for needy pugs. Pug Rescue of Sacramento (PROS) hosted this fundraiser for the first time this year with plans of making it an annual event. It certainly was a blast and a success for PROS.
Granada Bowl in Livermore, CA, was the venue. It could not have been a better place. It was clean and the staff was friendly and very helpful. Employees helped set up and break down for the event and even donated toward the cause.
PROS reserved a block of lanes for two hours of bowling and a party room. The party room had vendors selling pug themed tote bags, dog themed decal stickers (yup, that was us 😀 ), pet insurance, and jewelry. There was also a raffle for a $100 MasterCard gift card.
While medals and prizes where awarded to the top three highest scores for adults and the top three highest scores for kids, people played for fun. People caught up with old friends and met new friends over yummy pizza and fries in between frames. They joked and cheered for each other. Overall the atmosphere was good, clean family fun.
Until next year, check out some photos:
