Striking Results For The Inaugural STRIKE UP for Vets Bowling Fundraiser


On April 3rd, Striking Spotlight and Veterans Together Charity Forever Inc. held their inaugural STRIKE UP for Vets Bowling fundraiser at Sheridan Lanes in Kenosha. The support we received this year was fantastic! We had over 70 bowlers and many more people came out to celebrate. This year’s 50/50 and raffles were especially popular thanks to the fantastic in-kind donations we received from individuals and local businesses.

This event raised funds for two veteran organizations. 

VFW Post 1865 Riders Group: The first VFW Riders Group in Wisconsin. We are VFW and Auxiliary members that also enjoy motorcycles. Through our love of riding, we support the mission of the VFW. Through fundraising, we support Veterans’ charities and the community. 

Veterans Together Charity Forever Inc: We are committed to helping veterans, children, and families in need throughout Kenosha, Wisconsin, and surrounding areas.

Thanks to everybody that participated and supported this event! We are extremely grateful for your generosity. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
