Clio Lodge 779 in Hilton recently organized its second bowling tournament at Pleasure Lanes in memory of Dominic Cook, who died in December 2016.
Trustee Bill Hunn and Cook’s father, Lou, Clio 779 marshall, raised $1,360 through the tournament. Proceeds went to Cook’s class at Merton Williams Middle School.
Teacher Jamie Melos said the money will purchase T-shirts for students who participate in Special Olympics. Her students continue to remember Cook by doing the fist bumps he loved to do and playing his favorite games — Monkey in the Cage, Turkey and Snail.
Cook’s parents said the event will be an ongoing fundraiser for the middle school.
