Boys Town Louisiana To Host Bowl-A-Palooza Charitable Fundraiser

NEW ORLEANS – May is National Foster Care Month. In recognition, Boys Town Louisiana is hosting Bowl-a-Palooza, a charitable fundraiser dedicated to recognizing the role we each can play in helping save children and heal families in our community.

         The afternoon event takes place Sunday, May 15, at Rock N Bowl, 3000 S.
