On Saturday, February 2nd, Oak Lawn’s Arena Lanes was taken over by the Hurckes family and friends to celebrate the life of Megan, the late daughter of former Oak Lawn trustee Jerry Hurckes, during the family’s annual bowling benefit.
The event was started to help raise money for the Megan Hurckes Scholarship Fund, which is aimed to help students get through school. Among the $40,000 the family raised prior to the event, money has also gone to different community organizations like Westside Baseball and the Oak Lawn Children’s Museum.
It was a night of fun for everyone; both adults and children alike. If you weren’t able to make it this year, don’t worry, plans are already in the works for next year’s event, and it’s never too late to donate. Checks can be made payable to the Megan Hurckes Scholarship Foundation, c/o 7036 W. 96th St., Oak Lawn, IL, 60453.
