EAGLE RIVER - Breast Cancer patients rooms at the Marshfield Clinic will have a nice new touch thanks to a group in Eagle River.
The ninth annual "Bowl for a Cure" raised money to buy brand new TVs for the rooms, and money leftover will go toward research.
The Ladies Night Out Bowling League started the benefit. Nine years ago it was just the 50 women in the league who participated. But these past few years have seen more than a hundred family, friends and community members join in too... even a team from Newswatch 12.
"Our committee has just really taken it to a higher level and gotten it to this big," says Event Organizer Susanne Erickson.
Erickson is already thinking about how she can make the event even better next year.
"The hope is that next year, the tenth year, we're going to be bigger and better. And I've got some surprises planned for next year as well," says Erickson.
The benefit has raised between $6,000 and $9,000 in the past. Erickson says they've got more bowlers this year, so she hopes they can reach that $9,000 mark again.
