FUN BOWL

Our first Fun Bowl Fundraiser
Saturday, May 21, 2011 at Camelot Bowl in Collinsville, IL

When you entered Camelot, the first thing you noticed was our NAMI Southwestern IL display with information and NAMI balloons on all the lanes. NAMI’s presence was very noticeable. We had lanes 9 through 32 reserved and all but one lane was filled.
