Congratulations to PIE Bowl Winners

PIE Bowl 2017

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Partners In Education, congratulations to the winners of the 19th Annual (and final – at the Strike Zone!) PIE Bowl and thank you to everyone who participated and volunteered to make this such a successful fundraising event!

Be sure and visit our Facebook page to see the photos of the creative, imaginative group of people who work at Craven County Schools!

Thank you to Mark Gatlin at Strike Zone for his hard work and First Citizens and Century 21 Zaytoun Raines for bowling with us (generous spirits!). Thank you to our many sponsors who support this event, and the many local businesses who donated (what felt like millions!) of door prizes. And most close to my heart, thank you to the many volunteers (PIE Board members and our school Ambassadors) who work so hard on this event, getting the fabulous door prizes we hand out, organizing teams, and making it so much fun on the day of PIE Bowl.

Everyone showed up in their best costumes, displayed their best team spirit, and won the hearts of the judges.  The decisions were hard, but the final winners are:
