The East Meadow Kiwanis recently held its Bowling for a Kause fundraiser, in which the organization raised $700 for Kamp Kiwanis and the Pediatric Lyme Disease Foundation.
More than 100 people joined the organization for a night of fun, pizza and bowling.
The first $550 raised will be used to send the child of a local serviceman or servicewoman to Kamp Kiwanis in the summer of 2013 while the remaining $150 will be donated to the Pediatric Lyme Disease Foundation through the Joseph Michael Wuest Service Leadership Fellowship Program.
Kamp Kiwanis is aimed at providing fun, physical exercise and adventure. "It strives to afford opportunities to participate in a creative outdoor group experience in a democratic setting and develop characteristics of leadership and fair play."
The Pediatric Lyme Disease Foundation is an organization that aims to help pay for medical treatment for children with Lyme Disease, an ailment caused by bacteria usually transmitted by the deer tick that can invade the central nervous system within days to a week of initial skin infection.
