Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan is supporting the Chautauqua Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Council's efforts to raise money for its eighth annual bowl-a-thon to help keep children off drugs.
Horrigan is also encouraging other community groups or individuals to help CASAC roll a strike on June 5.
"Keeping the children of Chautauqua County drug free is a top priority," Horrigan said. "That's why I fully support CASAC and their eighth annual bowl-a-thon fundraiser. I encourage everyone to sign up and take part in this important event."

CASAC staff and board members are looking for sponsors for the 2014 CASAC "Helping Keep Kids Off Drugs" Bowl-a-thon. The event will be at the Jamestown Bowling Company, Foote Avenue, Jamestown, at 7 p.m. June 5. Money raised at the event will be used to provide alcohol and other drug prevention education and intervention services for youth in the community. CASAC's goal is to reach $7,000.
Any resident who wants to support the project but doesn't want to bowl or pledge an individual can just make a monetary donation to CASAC, 501 W. Third St., Suites 3 & 4, Sprinchorn Building, Jamestown, NY 14701.
