For two years the SwampDogs annual bowling tournament has benefited the Friendship House of Fayetteville, raising approximately $6,000. Local teams joined forces with SwampDogs players, bowling in a fun event for an important cause. Trophies during the competition included but were not limited to, high team score, low individual score, and most gutter balls.
In addition to donating to the Friendship House, the SwampDogs have a personal investment in the project.
"It's so rewarding to see this come from an idea to fruition, especially this quickly. We are honored to be part of this tremendous opportunity for our community," said SwampDogs General Manager, Jeremy Aagard. "The most humbling part of this experience is that two of our summer interns from our Special Olympics internship program are going to be some of the first residents in Fayetteville."
The ribbon-cutting ceremony, held at the project location in Haymount, was well attended. Visitors were offered tours of the site and enjoyed food after the ribbon cutting.
