Not A “Spare” lane for the sellout crowd!
Ali’s Rally is held in honor of Alison Gerlach, who upon her passing in 2003 donated her organs to those in need. Alison Gerlach was loved by many, and because of her willingness to give the gift of life back to others, her family partners with Unyts and others in honor of her memory by hosting Ali’s Rally. The proceeds from Ali’s Rally go towards the Unyts “Donate Life” program, which is a program designed to reach out to students and the community here in WNY to raise awareness for those who are in need of organs or other donations.
The sellout Rally held this year at Transit Lanes in Williamsville was a great success! Over 40 students from various local schools developed bowling teams. The support and contributions from those within the community was incredible. It was wonderful to see the bowling alley filled with T-shirts that said Unyts, Donate Life, or supported Ali’s Rally! Over 200 people attended, and with over 100 raffle baskets, there were many winners that day!
*The funds help Unyts share the message of organ donation through the Donate Life High School education program.
