On May 2nd, the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) hosted its first annual “Strikes for Scholars” Bowl-a-Thon Fundraising Event at Bayside Bowl in Portland and raised over $10,000! All proceeds will fund scholarships for Maine students pursuing studies in architecture, construction, or engineering through the ACE Mentor Program (www.acementor.org).
Special thanks to AAA Energy for securing special guest, former Boston Celtic, NBA MVP and current radio broadcaster for the Celtics, Cedric Maxwell who brought a great energy to the event. Check out the video and write-up in the Bangor Daily News!
Many thanks also to our sponsors Bath Savings Institution and Dead River Properties, our bowlers, and those bidding on some great sports memorabilia in the silent auction.
Congratulations to First Place Winners from Team “Split Happens”, (Verrill Dana) and Runners-up, Team “Pinheads”, (Creative Office Pavilion)!
