First Flyers: Stars ‘N Strikes

Although no perfect games were recorded, the August
2017 White First Flyer group certainly chose a winner
when they conceived Freedom Mortgage’s most
recent Stars ‘N Strikes charity bowling fundraiser.

The event, held at the local Pinsetter Bar & Bowl on
April 30th, benefited Operation Troop Appreciation: a
Pennsylvania-based nonprofit dedicated to building
and sustaining the well-being of our servicemen and
women.

In true Freedom fashion, the number of signups
shattered the initial goal of 200, with 399 members
of the Freedom family signing up to attend or donate
to the cause. Over 200 employees and their families
and friends strolled down the red carpet entrance to
enjoy three hours of bowling, a catered lunch, and
events ranging from face painting to raffles for prizes.
These additional events, alongside a company bake
sale complete with donations from Dunkin’ Donuts,
raised an additional $796.

In total, $11,794 was raised for the cause. The event’s
organizers were certainly impressed with the success
of the initiative. Reflecting on the event, Project
Manager Rachel Buckthorpe was “most excited to see
employees from all different tracks coming together,
chatting with their family and friends, all to support
a great cause.”

If you missed the event, be on the lookout for
upcoming opportunities to get involved and give
back to the community. With the success of this year’s
Stars ‘N Strikes, similar events are sure to follow!
