Why? Since 2004, the Business Leaders of Charlotte (BLOC) has hosted BLOC ‘n’ Bowl, a fund-raising bowling event, as the precursor to their holiday giving. Monies raised allow the organization to adopt families during the holidays, shopping for, wrapping and delivering presents to families in great need. NARI members have participated in every aspect of the event, with NARI members raising money, shopping for "wish list" items for adopted families, wrapping presents, and making home deliveries. In August 2015, we hosted our first annual Pins 4 Kids, raised over $10K, and sent our bowling champions (Team Electrolux), our fund-raising champions (Team NARI Gives), and supporting funds to represent NARI Charlotte in BLOC 'n' Bowl, attaching our brand to good works in the community. This year, we will host the second annual edition of our own event on August 19th, as a precursor to our holiday giving effort, and again send our bowling champions , fund-raising champions and funds ($$) to represent NARI in BLOC ‘n’ Bowl in December. This will be FUN!
