A team from Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Michigan City was victorious for the second consecutive year over another from IU Health LaPorte Hospital at the Michigan City Women’s Bowling Association’s 14th Annual Bowl For The Cure charity event at Lakeshore Lanes recently. The Breast Care Center at Franciscan St. Anthony Health has been the recipient of a portion of the proceeds from The Bowl For The Cure since 2008 and uses the funds to provide mammograms for underprivileged area women.
The association again this year requested a friendly “bowl-off” to enhance fund-raising efforts, which resulted in approximately $9,000 raised that was split between the hospitals. Bowl for the Cure was begun by Debbie Martin, an employee of Franciscan Physician Network-Michigan City. Shown, from left, are team members Darla Ream, executive assistant to hospital president James Callaghan, MD; Jacque Pitrowski, benefits specialist in the Human Resources department; Daneen Kaufman, a former hospital employee; Stephanie Ream, a Franciscan Physician Network receptionist; and Craig Menninga, hospital manager of diagnostic imaging.
