Proceeds went to PCMA‘s elected charity recipient Best Buddies®, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships and integrated employment.

Attendance was a record high with over 300 Chapter Associations and Corporations participating. Monies were raised for Best Buddies through a Silent Auction, 50-50 raffle and gutter ball donation buckets located at each lane.
