(Rising Sun, Ind.) – A recent fundraising event was a great success due to great community support.

Donald Bowman passed away in October of 2010. After his passing, his family decided to remember him by giving away scholarships to local high school seniors in his memory. Bowman was best known for being a loving husband, father, and grandfather.

He also dedicated many years of his life working at Seagram’s and later at Lawrenceburg High School Janitorial.

Fundraising for the Bowman Scholarship hit a snag over the last year due to COVID-19, but a UTV/Jeep Ride was organized on May 1 to raise funds for the scholarship.

The event raised over $10,000.

Next year’s UTV/Jeep Ride is already in the works. It is scheduled for April 30, 2022.

The Bowman family extends their thanks to all of the following sponsors of the event.
