DESTIN, Fla. (WKRG) — A fundraiser to revive the Destin Main Street Community Garden brought more than 100 bowlers to Hurricane Lanes in Destin Friday morning.
The Destin Chamber of Commerce hosted the Feb. 3 Valentines Day themed event called ‘You’re Right Up our Alley.’
Hurricane Lanes staff said they had 106 bowlers with tickets at $30 a person. A silent auction and a ‘Pie the Mayor of Destin’ also created extra funds.
