Westland Bowl was a great venue to host our event.  Their staff was outstanding and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Big shout out to our caterer, Scott Winfrey of Marquis Foodservice Catering in Westland.  They put out a spread that everyone could enjoy!  What a wonderful donation by our classmate from JGHS.  If you want your next event to be a smashing success, then visit www.MarquisFoodservice.com.

Another shoutout to Heritage Logo Works for printing up so many t-shirts for folks to buy.  Plus, they designed a beautiful “blinged” shirt for Terri to sport at the event. There’s plenty of

Lastly, we have to thank all the folks that donated items for the big raffle.  We had two iPad Mini’s (Thanks Judy Durham and CDW), Tiger’s tickets, hockey jersey, jewelry, margarita baskets, food baskets, beach baskets, and more.  We even had a wonderful donation of diamond earrings courtesy of Sean Bono of A&E Jewelry (www.AandEjewelry.com).  Almost everyone left with a gift.

Lastly, big thank you to our organizer Tracy Dunsmore Posey who made the event come together.  Without her guidance, the event would not have happened.  On behalf of Terri, Jeff, and the entire family, thank you all who donated, attended, and supported the Bowling Night for My Friend Terri!
