SOUTHFIELD, MI – On Sunday, May 20th, Oakmont Senior Communities will proudly host a family-friendly bowling fundraiser with proceeds going to support the ongoing recovery of Oakland County Sheriff’s Deputy David Hack. Deputy Hack was injured in the line of duty on January 4th when he was struck by a passing motorist, and has since been undergoing treatment for severe injuries.
Hosted at Classic Lanes in Rochester Hills, attendees of the May 20th event will enjoy an afternoon of fun, with three games of bowling, shoes, live music, a pizza lunch, and soft drinks all included with the price of admission. Raffle baskets, giveaways, and additional items will also be available during the event for purchase. All monies raised from the event will go to benefit Deputy Hack and his family.
Tickets for the bowling fundraiser are still available and cost $20 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under. They can be purchased on the day of the event at the door or by contacting Janell Allison, Activity Director for Oakmont’s Rochester Assisted, Rochester Memory Care, Sterling Assisted, and Sterling Memory Care Communities, at 586-554-7200. Tickets can also be purchased at any of the 10 Oakmont Communities located throughout Metro Detroit. For a list of communities and addresses, please visit OakmontCommunities.com.
The bowling fundraiser is just one part of a year-long Oakmont Cares fundraising initiative, which each year supports a local cause selected by staff members. Last year, the Oakmont Cares effort raised more than $22,000 to adopt Whiskey, a trained Medical Service Dog, who was paired with a Michigan veteran suffering from ongoing challenges as a result of his service. This year, the decision to support Deputy Hack is directly related to Oakmont’s commitment to community.
“Law enforcement and first responders are vital to the entire community, but especially our seniors. They’re in our communities on a weekly basis, and always go the extra mile to help however they can,” said Katherine Kalaydjian, Oakmont Senior Communities’ Director of Operations. “The opportunity for our seniors, our families, and our organization to give back and help an Officer in need is really something special.”
Registration for the bowling event will begin at 1:30pm on the 20th with bowling activities beginning at 2:00pm. Limited sponsorship opportunities are also available for businesses or individuals who would like to show their support. Contact Janell Allison for more information on sponsorship.
