That's Life

As a career professional, volunteer, mom, wife, and friend, I focus on the positive aspects of life, even when the road is rough getting there. Life is funny. How you treat others, how you handle situations, and how you live each day is your responsibility ... so are the outcomes.

Homes for Our Troops

Bowl - Volunteer - Donate

The Nuts About Giving (NAG) team is proud and honored to be hosting a 9-Pin Tap, Singles Bowling Tournament on Saturday, May 18, 2013 to benefit Homes for Our Troops. We are uniting people together on Armed Forces Day to state their gratitude for our soldiers' sacrifices to preserve the freedoms of America. Mobility is a freedom we take for granted. Some of our returning troops have lost not only their mobility, but the place they used to call home. Accessibility is now diminished by their injuries. Let's help the men and women of all military branches regain their independence.

Homes for Our Troops is a national non-profit, 501(c)3 organization based in Tauton, Mass. founded in 2004. Their mission is to build specially adapted homes for service members, who have been severely injured in combat operations since September 11, 2001. All homes are built at no cost to the veteran through the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporate contributors. Homes for Our Troops received a Four Star rating from Charity Navigator.

Please help us reach our $5,000+ fundraising goal!

We need bowlers to fill Riviera Lanes (86th & Greenfield Ave.) The cost is $40 per bowler. Each paid bowler will receive a gift bag of goodies, a "bowler only" prize ticket, a t-shirt, and a food ticket. The spots will fill up quick, so please gather your friends and family together and get your entry forms with full payment turned in.
