Parents can enjoy bowling with their children during the Rock-N-Roll Bowl to raise funds to buy school clothes for underserved middle and high school students.
Sponsored by Rutherford County school resource officers, the event takes place from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 14 at Smyrna Bowling Center (95 Weakley Lane, Smyrna). Cost is $120 for a team of four.
In addition, there will be a silent auction of items ranging from tools, gift cards and a grill to a new leather, sectional sofa.
All proceeds will be used to take the students shopping for school clothes for the fall semester during tax-free weekend July 29-31. The students are chosen by school counselors in the Rutherford County Schools.
“We want to make sure we can help every student we can and make a difference in their lives,” says School Resource Officer Sam Trubee.
The SROs thank all the businesses who donated items for the auction.
