Whoever said 13 was an unlucky number?
Classical Action’s 13th annual benefit bowling bonanza was anything but unlucky, raising more than $120,000 and making it the second-highest edition of Up Our Alley since it started in 1999. The 2011 total was up $41,000 over last year.
To expand participation, the traditional heart and soul of Up Our Alley, the performing arts community, was joined by corporate financial teams organized through the Interbank Roundtable Committee.
The top fundraising music industry team was “Ball Busters” with $9,411 and the top banking industry team was UBS with $7,941. Best Team Name honors went to Carnegie Hall for “Carnegie Balls: Bigger, Better and Bowlder” and Best Team Costume went to IMG Artists.
Up Our Alley 13 was held September 19 at Bowlmor Lanes Union Square
