On July 11, Camp Avnet once again participated in its annual Ohel bowl-a-thon to raise money for the children and families of Ohel. At the Rockville Centre Bowling Alley, Rabbi Jeremy Fine, assistant director of Avnet Country Day School/Woodmere Campus, along with 80 campers, began knocking down pins in their annual Ohel bowl-a-thon, which they have been participating in for nearly a decade.
The Avnet campers have a great time every year, as they know that with every pin they knock down, they earn more money for Ohel’s important services and programs. It’s a fun day for the campers, who have a great time bowling while simultaneously supporting a good cause.
Ohel would like to thank Jack Tarzik, the director of Avnet Country Day School, for supporting Ohel and the important work that they do, as well as Shaya Samet, head counselor of Avnet Country Day School/Woodmere Campus, for encouraging his campers to bowl with fervor and knock down as many pins as possible.
In the words of Rabbi Jeremy Fine, “There are few organizations in the world that work as diligently and as conscientiously for our Jewish community. We therefore consider it an honor to team up with Ohel in any capacity we can and to help children approximately the same ages as our campus population enjoy a summer experience commensurate to our own. Continue to do your good work, Ohel, and we will proudly continue to stand with you, cheer you on, and, yes, bowl for you!”
