Bowling for the Brave at Station 300

To help support our Lowcountry heroes, Station 300 has a goal to raise $15,000 for two local foundations: Honor our Heroes Foundation and Healing Heroes of the Lowcountry.
Station 300 did a great job organizing ways to support our local heroes. For every game bowled during the entire month of May, $1 will be donated. They also have themed drinks so that when you purchase one, $1 will also be donated.

On Saturday, May 31, Station 300 has a full day planned.

• 10am-7pm: Battle of the Branches: Bowl for your favorite military branch of service!
• 6 pm: Hilton Head Shore Notes performance
• 8pm: Check presentation to foundations and prizes awarded
• 8:30-11:30pm Music by Vinyl on Fire

The staff at Beacon Insurance group couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a contribution, and have a little fun doing it! The Beacon team headed to Station 300 this past Wednesday for a delicious lunch at Zeppelins Bar & Grill and then laced up to roll some strikes for our heroes! We were honored to meet with Gary Trimm, one of the owners at Station 300, and present him with a check as Beacon’s contribution to our local Hereos.

We couldn’t have had more fun celebrating the men and woman who sacrifice all they’ve got for us! Thank you to ALL of our heroes!
