The Ann Arbor Electrical Joint Apprenticeship Training Center’s Union 4 Life breast cancer charity held its Annual Bowling Night on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at Airport Lanes Bowling Complex in Jackson, Mich.
Through the events, various fundraising efforts including a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, bowling and contests, the charity was able to raise $2,378.50 for the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center (newly renamed to the Rogel Cancer Center) Breast Cancer Research Program.
Founded in 2012 by the AAEJATC training director John Salyer and the AAEJATC/IBEW Local 252 apprentices, Union 4 Life has raised over $72,000 for the U-M Cancer Center.
AAEJATC instructor Bill White said the outing is a great event for friends and family. “It’s a good chance for everyone to get together and have some good, old-fashioned fun while supporting a great cause,” White said.
Union 4 Life has hosted many fundraising events to help raise money including annual golf outings, 5k walk/runs, bowling tournaments, sporting clays, archery shoots and motorcycle poker runs. The charity’s next fundraiser will be the Fifth Annual Charity Golf Outing at Eagle Crest Golf Course in Ypsilanti on Saturday, June 9.
Public relations director Hope Salyer said the outing will feature a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and will be played at the top-rated golf course in Washtenaw County.
