Westerville students will score various opportunities in the future, thanks to proceeds from the Westerville Community Bowl-A-Thon. The annual fundraiser will kick off at 11 a.m. Feb. 29 at the Columbus Bowling Palace, 5707 Forest Hills Blvd. in Columbus. The afternoon of bowling, coordinated through the Westerville Scholarship Foundation, the Westerville Education Foundation and the Westerville Symphony, serves as the largest Westerville fundraiser that benefits Westerville students, according to Hild Peersen, executive director of the Westerville Symphony. Colleen Moidu, executive director of the Westerville Education Foundation, said the Bowl-A-Thon generated $8,000 for each organization last year. She said the Bowl-A-Thon has received support from 70 to 80 teams in recent years.
