Region – When one of their own was diagnosed with cancer, the staff at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School rallied to offer support in several ways. Initially, staff members were urged to send a flurry of cards and letters of encouragement. More recently, a bowling fundraiser was held at the Shrewsbury AMF Lanes. Sixty-three people attended the Rosie Bowl, which raised $430 toward a scholarship for an Assabet student who has overcome an adversity. The 50/50 proceeds will help provide support for their colleague during the next round of chemotherapy treatments. The school is planning to hold another event in the spring, hoping to raise enough to make it a $1,000 scholarship.

“When we approached Christine Contreras from AMF headquarters, she was so helpful and did everything she could to make this work for us,” said Andrea Cronin, one of the event organizers. Everyone had such a good time, we will definitely do it again in the spring.”
