For the last 12 years, the lakes area community has taken to the lanes on the first Sunday and Monday in May to help raise awareness and funds for not-for-profit senior care and services at Good Samaritan Society.

This year's event broke all previous records, bringing in $113,905. Nearly $9,000 of that total was raised at Community Bowl in Pine River.

The two-day Good Samaritan Bowl has grown to include more than 1,000 bowlers, sponsors and volunteers at two locations - Community Bowl in Pine River and Jack's House in Brainerd.

"We feel so lucky to experience such amazing support from our local friends and businesses," said Karen Prososki, Good Samaritan Society-Pine River administrator. "We are so proud of our community and its encouragement and enthusiasm for what we do."

The event is the largest fundraiser of the year for Good Samaritan Society. Over the years, the proceeds from Good Samaritan Bowl have been put to use making updates to shared resident areas, remodeling spa and resident rooms, transportation, and hospice services on the local campuses in Brainerd and Pine River.
