Bowling to Benefit Kids
PHS helps raise money for U of M’ s Amplatz Children’s Hospital
At PHS, we help kids thrive every day—usually in their homes.
But last week, staffers carried out the company’s mission at a bowling alley—by participating in Dave Lee’s Gutter Bowl 5 and helping to raise money for the University of Minnesota’s Amplatz Children’s Hospital.
The annual WCCO bowling tournament is just one of six to ten events PHS supports each year. Through our Sharing Care program, we volunteer and make financial contributions and in-kind donations to charitable initiatives that enhance the lives of special needs children.
PHS fielded two teams for this year’s event, held February 18 at the Brunswick Zone at Brooklyn Park. It may be a charity event, but it’s also highly competitive—so we admit we stacked one team with our best employee bowlers. It’s also a ton of fun for all the participants—and more importantly for PHS bowlers, it’s a way to support a local children’s hospital that takes such good care of kids like the patients PHS serves every day.
Here are a few more photos from the event:

What are your favorite charitable events that benefit children? Do you have suggestions for how PHS or others can get involved in organizations or efforts that improve the lives of kids? We’d love to hear from you.Originally published: February 25, 2011
