Pit Bowl Archives
In 2010, HSGV member Nikki Radzinski organized and ran the club's first ever Eng Dog-Fighting Bowling Fundraiser which raised over a thousand dollars for HSUS's End Dogfighting Campaign. In 2011, the fundraiser took a hiatus, but HSGV member Kristina Pepelko brought it back in 2012 and revamped the fundraiser into Pit Bowl, a benefit that aims to strike out dog-fighting and negative myths about pit bulls. Pit Bowl is HSGV's largest grossing fundraiser to date, and we plan to continue working to end dog-fighting and battling against pit bull discrimination with this yearly fundraiser.
- Pit Bowl 2012 raised a total of $2,000 for Pound Buddies Animal Shelter and Adoption Center and the Humane Society of the United States' Pets for Life Program (formally HSUS's End Dogfighting Campaign), making Pit Bowl 2012 HSGV's largest grossing fundraiser to date!
- About 70 people attended the 2012 fundraiser!
- Before there was Pit Bowl, HSGV held it's first End Dog-Fighting Bowling Fundraiser at Clique Lanes. This benefit raised over $1,000 for the Humane Society of the United States' End Dogfighting Campaign!
