Young Leaders Society is Hosting Annual Bowl-A-Thon

Over 70 individuals will bowl together on Friday November 18, 2011 at Zodo’s Bowling & Beyond to raise money for United Way’s Young Leaders Society’s 3rd Annual “United We Read,” and other valuable community programs.

This year’s event was made possible through the generosity of “The Strike” sponsors - Santa Barbara Bank & Trust & Venoco Inc.

United We Read matches young professional volunteers with a class at local elementary schools with the goal of engaging students to improve their enjoyment of reading and reading ability. The young professionals read to the students and donate books to the class or school’s library. The visit is also a great opportunity for the students to learn about the young professional’s career and education. Students love to ask questions and interact one-on-one with the volunteers.
