The Bowl for Life event took place at Champion Bowl in Ottumwa./KTVO.

Nine pins down and that’s a strike!

The American Cancer Society held it’s 11th annual Bowl for Life fundraiser at Champion Bowl in Ottumwa Saturday afternoon.

Sponsor Gary Brooks says 20 teams participated, all to raise money for cancer.

“The funds that we raise today will definitely stay in Wapello County and they support the cancer – all types of cancer, it does not matter what type. Many times a lot of people just think of breast cancer or certain types, but American Cancer Society works with all cancers," said Brooks.

Over 26 companies and organizations sponsored Saturday's event.

Brooks says they plan to have another fundraiser in December.
