The Paper Stock Industries (PSI) Chapter of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), Washington, held its most successful annual fundraising bowling tournament to date Oct. 17 at Lucky Strike Chicago.
The event, which raises money to support PSI’s academic scholarship fund, earned enough to allow the chapter to give $2,000 scholarships to eight students next year, matching its 2018 scholarship record, PSI reports.
The bowling tournament featured 12 five-person teams, with “Quilmington Paper”—a team of participants from Wilmington Paper Corp., Pine Brook, New Jersey, and Quincy Recycle, Alsip, Illinois, taking top honors.
The winning team—Stuart Lurie, Kurt McLaughlin, John Danker, Brett Lurie and Phil Bellafiore—posted a single-game team score of 698.
This year’s event also raised funds through corporate sponsorship and individual registrations for the tournament’s networking and other activities, such as billiards.
