Bowling alley holds event to send veterans on Honor Flight

Posted:
WESTON (WAOW) -

A Veterans Day event held in Weston, helped raise money for the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.

People gathered at Dale's Weston Lanes to take part in a chili feed, bowl a few frames and get their faces painted. It was all so area veterans can have the chance to take a trip on the Honor Flight.

In its first year, organizers said the event has already raised enough money to send five veterans on the trip.

"Basically, we just wanted to let the kids come out and do some crafts and bowl and really learn about it, while we raise some money to take some vets on their Honor Flight," said Sarah Dickinson.

Organizers said they hope to raise enough money to send nine veterans on the flight.
