The third annual Grace House bowling blitz is being considered a successful event.

"The third year went extremely well. We had up to 75 people there, a tremendous amount of donations from the community for our silent auction and at the end of the day we raised right around $5,000 with our event," stated Joseph Legacy, Executive Director of the Drumheller Grace House.

Legacy noted that a lot more people from the community were involved this year.

"Each year we do this there's been more people involved, people are getting to know who were are and are interested in what we do."

The money raised during the bowling blitz will go directly into the Grace House building account, as with all donations that come in separately.

"As soon as we make some solid plans with our growth, we will be using all the money from our building account to fund our projects of growth," Legacy outlined.

The Grace House building account is created for a new building and more.

"Looking at developing a much larger program here in Drumheller and incorporating different programs like being able to address the needs for women as well," Legacy concluded.
