Raptor Bowl V

Wednesday July 14 was Raptor Bowl V – The Raptor Center’s annual lawn bowling fundraiser! Though skies were a bit ominous at the start, the weather turned out to be a typical July day with lots of sun. Twenty-four teams came out to play for the Championship. This year’s winner was The Eagles, from Medical Technologies, Inc. All who came out agreed it was one of the best events yet, and it certainly helped The Raptor Center with our efforts to keep doing the work we love doing. A big thank-you to Brit’s Pub, who hosted the event, along with sponsors Delta Air Lines, WCCO AM Radio, KARE 11, and Capitol Beverage. Can’t wait to see you next year!

Staff Judy Moran and Claire Palmer enjoyed some sun!
