On October 26th, 2014, Donka held its 2nd Annual Bowling Fundraiser at Fox Bowl in Wheaton, IL.  More than 90 guests strapped on their bowling shoes to help support computer training for persons with disabilities.  Apart from bowling, our silent auction was a success!  With items like Steppenwolf Theatre Company tickets and overnight hotel stays with complimentary dinners, many guests left with great gifts while supporting a great cause. Donka would like to send a special thanks to our event sponsors.
