President Rae Shirer celebrates with team captain John Bouyer Orange Sunrise recovered bragging rights as the Rotary Challenge Champion, winning the title at the 12th Annual Elwyn California Bowl-a-Thon on April 3, 2010.
Orange Sunrise sponsored two teams, determined to beat last year’s winner, the Rotary Club of Tustin-Santa Ana, as well as teams representing the Rotary Clubs of Anaheim Hills, Newport-Balboa, and Newport-Irvine. Rotaract participated as well, with representatives from Long Beach and UC Irvine on hand for the challenge.
The friendly rivalry raised big cash for Elwyn which provides vocational training and job placement for the disabled. All 60 of the bowling centers lanes were sold out and attendees bid on great silent auction items and raced to win prizes for producing such things as a hunting license or displaying the hairiest arm.
Two prizes were awarded in the Rotary challenge class. Defending champion Tustin-Santa Ana made a valiant effort, placing second.
The champion team: Dennis Kauten, Michelle Kauten, Theresa Bouyer, Justin Gozzo and team captain John Bouyer.
