Striking Back

Fundraiser For Domestic Violence Advocacy Organization

Kathy Orr / Baker City Herald A MayDay fundraiser to help “Strike Out Abuse” drew people to Elkhorn Lanes in Baker City Saturday to participate in cosmic bowling. In Halloween costumes as two nerds are Shelby Griffith, left, and NovaLee Shoemaker. At right is Kerrie Fast as a snooty teenager. The event offered a silent auction, raffles, door prizes and prizes for best costumes. Proceeds from the event will help support MayDay programs for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse.

A cosmic bowling fundraiser Saturday afternoon and evening at Elkhorn Lanes in Baker City raised $2,055 for MayDay Inc., the nonprofit organization that helps victims of sexual and domestic violence and elder abuse.

The bowling event itself, which pitted teams of six against one another, raised $736 in entry fees, said Mark Bogart, a spokesman for MayDay.

Raffle tickets for a snowblower donated by Sears brought in another $260.

The remainder — $1,059 — was raised by other raffle and silent auction items.
