Dinsmore’s Charleston Office Squares Off in the Shohl Bowl to Benefit Local Charities

November 17, 2016News Releases
Dinsmore & Shohl LLP’s Charleston Office will lace up their bowling shoes and face off in their annual Friends of Shohl Bowl, an event benefitting a number of West Virginia charities with office bragging rights on the line.

The entire Charleston office is divided into four groups, with each team selecting a charity to support. Each team contributes $250 to a grand prize pool. The participants also have been raising funds and collecting supplies to benefit their charity based on each organization’s needs. The $1,000 grand prize is donated to the winning team’s charity, and team members receive a customized bowling trophy to commemorate their victory.

The charities selected as beneficiaries for this year’s event are the Charleston Family Resource Center, the Kanawha-Charleston Humane Society, the Tiger Morton Juvenile Center and the Greater Kanawha Long Term Recovery Committee, which provides support for West Virginia flood victims.

“Our Shohl Bowl is a fun team-building contest for all of us and our families. Everyone chips in on donations to the chosen charities. Following some healthy competition during the bowling contest, we celebrate by making sizeable donations to each organization, plus one of them receives a check for at least $1000,” said Anna Dailey, Charleston Office Managing Partner. “Over the years, we have had clients, as well as co- tenants in our building, make donations to one or more teams. The Shohl Bowl is a great opportunity for the Dinsmore Charleston office and their families to join together in giving support to our local charities.”

In the past three years, the Shohl Bowl has raised more than $13,000 in cash, plus substantial donations of needed supplies. The event started a decade ago as a football game and evolved to bowling in recent years to allow more people to participate.

This year’s Friends of Shohl Bowl takes place on Sunday, November 20 at 4 p.m. at Galaxy Lanes on MacCorkle Avenue.
