Strikes made at the SAA Bowling Night benefiting Relay For Life

Nothing was spared at the Student Alumni Association (SAA) bowling night at Forward Lanes, located at 5844 Forward Avenue in Squirrel Hill. On Thursday, January 29, Chatham students and staff came together to bowl for a cure.

The SAA partnered with the Relay For Life Committee to have a fundraiser benefiting and promoting Relay For Life on February 6. Those who participated in bowling night paid $11 for two hours of bowling and shoe rental.

Junior Lauren Trichtinger had a great time bowling and found that she is pretty good at the sport.

“I won every game,” said Trichtinger.

She thinks bowling was a great way to spend an evening, and other bowlers also agreed.

Sophomore Olivia Bauer liked spending time with her friends but wished she’d done better.

“I would be so excited thinking I would get a strike but that one pin just never fell,” she said.

Relay For Life co-chair Lynzy Groves, felt the event was very successful. She said it was a solid fundraiser with solid entertainment. Bowling Night raised $55 for Relay For Life.

“Every penny raised helps to assist the American Cancer Society to support individuals living with cancer and fund cancer research,” she said.

If you weren’t able attend bowling night, there is still another chance to support Relay For Life. On Thursday, February 5 from 5:00 p.m. to  9:00 p.m. you have opportunity to sink your teeth into some Mongolian style grilling at BD’s Mongolian Grill located in SouthSide Works.

At Mongolian Grill night, there will special grillers including, Dr. David Fraser, Coach Betsey Warren, Skyler Wilcha, and Dean Zauyah Waite. Tickets are $25 per person for all-you-can-eat Mongolian food. For another $5 you will receive a movie ticket to a film of your choice at SouthSide Works. Tickets can be purchased on the first floor of the Carriage House.

Relay For Life will be held on Friday, February 6 from noon to midnight in the AFC Gym. There is still time to create or join a team. To do so, visit
