The 17th annual charity fun day bowling tournament at Midway Lanes in Mandan again resulted in large donations on Jan. 24 for two local charities.

Sponsored by retired businessman Terry Barnes and Midway Lanes, the charity event produced $4,550 for Pam’s House, the shelter operated by the Abused Adult Resource Center, and the Jesse Hillard Scholarship Fund. The charity tournament was held in November.

Receiving the checks were Bob Hillard, representing the Jesse Hillard Scholarship Fund; and Diane Zainhofsky, AARC executive director. Presenting the checks were Terry Barnes and Jim Mellon and Sheila Tveito of Midway Lanes.

The fun-day bowling tournament has provided $71,990 for local charities since its inception in 1995.

Pam’s House, an emergency shelter that provides a safe, temporary home for women and children made homeless as a result of domestic violence, is named for Pamela Senger Norman, who lost her life due to domestic violence in 1992  The scholarship is named for Jesse Hillard, a Mandan youth who died in a tragic accident in 1995. Hillard had been a longtime member of youth bowling in the community.
