Truman Heartland Community Foundation’s Youth Advisory Council recently held their annual fundraiser to raise money for their endowment which benefits youth-serving charities in Eastern Jackson County. More than 250 students from 13 area high schools (including Lee’s Summit, Lee’s Summit North and Lee’s Summit West High Schools) invaded Lunar Bowl Dec. 6 for “Strike in the Night-Give to Infinity and Beyond” and raised more than $4,500 for charity. The students learned that philanthropy can be fun – bowling, singing karaoke, watching movies, playing in the arcade and using the photo booth.
