Bowl-a-thon raises $72,000

Posted on 15 May 2014 by admin

One of the most impactful family programs benefiting the North Texas community for the past seven years is the Gladys Golman/Faye Dallen Special Needs Fund of the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and the Special Needs Partnership of Jewish Family Service.

On Sunday, April 27, more than 200 bowlers participated in the annual Zweig Family End of School Year Bash benefit hosted at Bowlmor Dallas in Addison. “The turnout was amazing and everyone had a fantastic time bowling, competing, winning and donating to a great cause,” said Co-Founder Louis Zweig. This year’s tournament and silent auction raised $72,000 that will help fund dedicated resources and startup programs for schools. It will also fund educational seminars and training days to further develop classroom and teacher strategies for learning differences such as autism/Asperger’s syndrome, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia and other learning differences and neurological disorders.

The Fund is a 501 C 3 organization housed within the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and during the past seven years it has raised more than $400,000.

The GGFD Fund focuses on children with different forms of autism, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia and other neurological disorders. If supporters were unable to attend the event, but wish to contribute, tax-deductible contributions of any size can be sent to: Gladys Golman/Faye Dallen Education Fund C/O Dallas Jewish Community Foundation, 12700 Hillcrest Road, Suite 201, Dallas, TX 75230.
