Tuesday, November 12, United Way North-Northwest and Chicago Bears Kicker Robbie Gould’s public charity, The Goulden Touch, teamed up to bring much-needed resources to Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs with a “Strike Gould” bowling event benefiting the Palatine Opportunity Center.

The bowling tournament, hosted at Pinstripes in Northbrook, brought together corporations, individuals and groups from around Chicagoland. Participating companies included Allstate, Big Tuna Marketing, CBOE Holdings, Deloitte, Discover, Fox, Swibel, Levin & Carroll LLP, Littler Mendelson, Meltzer, Purtill & Stelle, LLC, Reed Smith, Thermoflex, Weltman Bernfield LLC, and Wintrust Financial. United Way North-Northwest’s Young Leaders Society and board members also took to the lanes to show their support.

The $60,000+ raised from “Strike Gould” benefited programming at the Palatine Opportunity Center, an organization connecting underserved residents in the Northwest Suburban area to services and resources in an effort to build a community of empowered people, healthy families and vibrant neighborhoods.
