Bowling benefit to assist family of cancer victim

TAYLOR — A night of bowling will raise funds for the family of a local Realtor who is battling a rare form of thyroid cancer with no known cure.

The fund-raiser for the family of Taylor resident Rene Louis is scheduled for Friday at Taylor Lanes, 24800 Eureka Road.

Advance registration is necessary. Check-in is scheduled for 6 p.m., followed by nine-pin, no-tap bowling at 6:45. Music and dancing in the lounge begins at 9:30 p.m.

The poker room also will be open. Mystery games, lucky strike contests and raffles will take place throughout the night.

Tickets are $20 each, which includes three games of bowling, shoes and pizza.

Louis is an agent at Century 21 Americal and has been a member of the Downriver Association of Realtors for many years. Rosanne Couvreur, associate broker and owner of Century 21 Americal, called her “an inspiration to all with her optimistic attitude regarding her disease.” Louis lives in Taylor with her husband, Brian, and their children.

Couvreur said she also is seeking donations for the raffles, suggesting cash, gift cards, gift baskets of any size and new items of any kind, such as wine or liquor. Items can be delivered to Century 21 Americal’s Brownstown Township office at 23537 Telegraph Road, Suite 105, or Couvreur will be happy to pick up the donations.

To reserve a ticket or for more information call Couvreur at (734) 657-5076.
