NEW ULM, Minn. -

Bowlers took to the Lanes today for the 14th annual Oak Hills Memorial Foundation Bowling Classic.

This is one way the foundation strives to make a difference in the lives of everyone served through Oak Hills Living Center.

"It’s an amazing passionate committee that throws this party every year and Mary Ellen was the one who helped for the last four or five years and the committee members are so passionate that they get together all of these prizes simply to benefit our living center in New Ulm."

Proceeds from the event go toward purchasing a NuStep exercise chair, a bariatric bed and air mattresses for Oak Hills Living Center.

Last year's event raised about 10 thousand dollars.

     Participating area schools are utilizing a snack cart in the morning to help keep kids on track.  "A hungry student is a student that might have trouble focusing on their schoolwork, concentrating in the classroom. There might be behavior issues, trouble learning so this is just kind of a morning snack to hold them over until lunch," ISD 77/Mankato Clinic Foundation, Kelsey Rounds said.  The snack carts are brought to the hallways around 9:30 in the morning.
