Bowling event will help raise money, awareness
This Saturday, Aug. 18, from 1 p.m. until 11 p.m. Dylan Krum Day will be celebrated at Fritz's Lanes, 100 S. Second St. in Lehighton.
There will be cosmic bowling from 9-11 p.m. as well.
Dylan lost his battle with pediatric follicular lymphoma on July 15, 2010 at just 15 years of age.
Fifty percent of the proceeds from lane rentals and shoe rentals from Dylan Krum Day will benefit the "In Dylan's Arms" ministry and the Dylan Krum Scholarship Fund. There will be other events throughout the day to help raise even more money for both causes.
Dylan's family is grateful to the Fritzinger family for donating the use of the bowling center for the event. They are also looking forward to the opportunity to join others to remember and celebrate Dylan together.
"Dylan would love nothing more than to see people enjoy a fun outing together with their families and friends, because it meant so much for him to spend good times with the people he loved," says his mother, Lora Krum of Lehighton, on behalf of her husband Dave and son Gavin.
The Krums are anticipating a successful event, and one that they hope to sponsor every year.
