Support our eighth annual Turkey Trot 5k/10k, which benefits Friends of the Poor, at South Side Bowl, 125 Beech St, Scranton, on Sept. 24 at 6:30 p.m. Two games cost $10 (shoe rental included) with $2.50 of the proceeds benefiting Turkey Trot/Friends of the Poor. Join us!

Our first Turkey Trot/Friends of the Poor fundraiser was Aug. 27 at the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders game. It was a beautiful, fun day and we had a great turnout! We raised $155 towards our Turkey Trot 5k/10k on Sunday, Nov. 5, and all proceeds support Friends of the Poor.
