Members of the Burbank Kiwanis Aktion Club members have pinned their hopes on attending the Aktion Club Convention this summer, and on Sunday they convened at Pickwick Bowl to knock down some pins in order to make that hope a reality.
Staging their second annual Bowl-a- Thon fundraiser, Aktion Club members, participants and guests were welcomed to the Pickwick lanes by Burbank Kiwanis for Fun President Linda Curtin and Immediate Past President Jan Loporchio. Among the supporters on hand were club advisors Donna Wade, Julie Strasser, Paula Moody, Isabel Adams, Maria Di Liberto and Pam Roldan. Also in attendance were numerous family members and friends including Mireya Kulp, Natasha Keith, Erika Herrera, Rudy Donofrio, Betty Thompson and Mike Ciggiano.
Following a hot dog lunch, Aktion Club members took to the lanes to compete for trophies and to raise funds. The proceeds from Sunday’s event will be used for travel to the Fresno area and to cover registration costs for club members who will be representing Burbank at this year’s Aktion Convention and Camp in Sanger, Calif.
