Back by popular demand, the Annual IBEW 1245 Sacramento Regional Charity Bowl took place in late September at Country Club Lanes. The IBEW 1245 organizing team chose Capitol Elementary, a local school that mainly serves students from underserved communities, as the beneficiary for this year’s event.
More than 60 IBEW members, family, friends, and Capitol Elementary staff purchased tickets for the event. To boost the amount raised for charity, members were invited to bring their own raffle items, and participants were also able to purchase tickets to the raffle. The event raised a total of $1,000, which will be delivered to the school in the coming weeks.
“IBEW 1245’s annual Charity Bowl was a hit! It was great coming together again for a great cause,” said Lead Organizing Steward Nilda Garcia. “Bringing together our union family is always a fun time!”
“The whole Capitol Elementary Staff enjoyed our bowling event and appreciated the generosity of our IBEW Local 1245 members who were willing to contribute for a good cause,” Lead Organizing Steward Alvin Dayoan added. “I also had a good time catching up with our fellow brothers and sisters, and we look forward to hosting another in event in the future.”
“Working with Nilda and Alvin in preparation of my first charity event was fun,” reported Lead Organizing Steward Donny Davis. “I chose to spread the word via social media, text, and physically posted flyers at the yards I work. The cool part about it was that it started conversation about our Union. The attendance was good, and everybody I talked to said they had a lot of fun.”
