Bowling, beer and plenty of cheers throughout the bowling alley as Oak Hills Memorial Foundation played host to its 16th annual Bowling Classic on Monday afternoon.

The Oak Hill Memorial Foundation organizes this event each year, trying to raise enough money to purchase a list of things Oak Hills Living Center asks for.

This year, they are trying to raise enough money for new technology such as iPads, iPods and software for staff to provide therapy to residents.

“We’ve raised money for a handicap accessible van, for different equipment sometimes for the residents," said Oak Hills Memorial Foundation Board Member Shannon Hillesheim.  "This year it’s going for technology.  Music therapy has been a big thing now.  We have a guy that comes down and it’s a great way to calm residents.”

The classic fills all 16 lanes with 96 bowlers.  There was also a live auction, silent auction, and bake sale available to help raise funds.
