Ballet Quad Cities hosted their 2nd Annual Bowling to Banish Bullying event at the Blackhawk Bowl and Martini Lounge in Davenport on Saturday, October 13th.

The event raises money for bullying prevention outreach programs at elementary schools in the Quad City area.

"It's really fun," says Jodi Cook, Executive Director of Ballet QC. "It's an opportunity to get people down here, bowl for a good cause, and help our community."

In 2011, the event raised $6,000.
