Bowling for books at Ballou

Ballou Senior High School and the Friends of Ballou are hosting a Bowl-A-Thon at Lucky Strike in downtown DC January 29 from 2:00 - 5:00 pm.   The purpose of the event is to raise money so the Ballou library can increase its book collection to meet the national standard of 11 books per student.   The current ratio is 1:1.   Ten thousand dollars is needed to help make this goal reality.

Corporate and individual sponsors are being sought to help boost the fundraising efforts.   Additional information is in this letter from Melissa Jackson, Library Media Specialist at Ballou Senior High School.   More information is available from Jackson by calling (202) 250-0397 or via email.
