Sarah Oyen received a special trophy recognizing her as the top fundraiser once again at the bowl-a-thon that bears her name. The event benefits Life Unlimited.

LIBERTY — In its 21st year, the Sarah Oyen Classic, a bowl-a-thon held on Nov. 9, raised more than $11,000 to support individuals with developmental disabilities served by Life Unlimited.

The event is named for its most enthusiastic fundraiser, Sarah Oyen, who makes it a priority to topple her own fundraising record — a goal she continuously meets, according to a press release from Life Unlimited.

Every lane was booked at the Retro Bowl in Liberty as dozens of Life Unlimited service providers and individuals with disabilities celebrated the culmination of their fundraising efforts with door prizes and two rounds of bowling. Contributing exactly $6,341, Oyen received a special trophy recognizing her as the top fundraiser once again.

The money raised for the event helps enhance Life Unlimited’s recreation programs and services, which include a bowling league.

“Sarah is a perfect example of when positivity, determination and compassion converge,” Life Unlimited CEO Julie Edlund said. “Every year she hits the pavement to get donations, and every year she outdoes herself. We are always inspired by her and love to watch her succeed and celebrate at this event.”
