CBH Hosts March Madness Bowling Event

Bowling MattChildren's Beach House hosted a March Madness Bowling event on Friday, March 18, 2011, for the children and youth in the CBH program as well as for their family members.  The event was held at Bowlerama in New Castle, Delaware, but was attended by families from all three counties.  In total, the March Madness Bowling event drew 55 attendees.


 "The idea for this event was presented to us by two of our senior Bowling 2campers," said Steven Martinenza, Program Director for Children's Beach House.  "We loved the idea and asked them to assist in the planning stages.  These campers were responsible for determining the date, contacting various locations to determine the best price, and assisting with the creation of the invitation."


Bowling CrewCBH strives to coordinate a family oriented event at least once a quarter.  The events are meant to be fun while emphasizing family bonding and communication, and often promoting physical exercise.  "It is extremely rewarding to witness our campers and their families enjoying quality time together," said Laura Beasley, CBH's New Castle County Case Manager.  "From the perspective of a CBH employee, this event was an overall success for our families and kudos to the campers that helped make the March Madness Bowling event a reality."
