Rotary International has made a great push to be a part of the elimination of Polio. Local clubs are contributing to that effort with events like Pin Down Polio.
Dozens came out to Vista Lanes in Yorkville knock down pins and Polio.
Rotary international decided to host this event because it's National Polio Day and it's a disease that is often forgotten about.
There are just three countries left in the world with polio, Pakistan Afghanistan and Nigeria.
For $15, people got to bowl two games. All proceeds benefit PolioPlus.
Organizers said despite little planning time, they're pleased with the turnout.
"You know the support form Rotarians, form friends, from family, from the community has been great and to really make a statement that polio is still a thing that is out there," said co-chair Steve Karbowski. "You're always welcome to go to Rotary International's website or to PolioPlus website, you can always donate."
At the end of the night, the Rotary Club of Utica raised over $1,000 to PolioPlus. Bill and Melinda Gates, the founder of Microsoft, will also match that donation.
Organizers hope to make this an annual event.
