Teams participating in Sleep Country USA’s Pajama Bowl helped raise $154,000 to benefit foster children in the Pacific Northwest.
ROCKLIN, Calif. — Sleep Country USA's eighth annual Pajama Bowl raised a total of $154,000 for foster children in the Pacific Northwest.
The bowling event, with pajama-clad bowlers in Seattle and Portland, Ore., will help fund the "little wishes" programs, enabling the children to participate in extracurricular activities, such as dance classes, school field trips and summer camps. Thirteen nonprofit partners will receive the donations, which will go toward helping nearly 20,000 foster children.
"We are thrilled to host our most successful event to date," said Jarrett Tomalin, marketing and community relations coordinator at Sleep Country USA, which operates more than 80 mattress stores in the Northwest. "Thanks to our generous community, amazing team of employee volunteers and gracious partners we are proud to help make certain that local foster children have the same opportunities to participate in the extra-curricular activities we did as kids. These are the life-shaping events that make us the adults we are today."
To date, Sleep Country's Pajama Bowl has raised more than $750,000 for foster children.
