As the world gears up for the Summer Olympics, local roofers and builders invite the public to join in as they prepare to “Go for the Gold” with a charity bowling tournament to benefit Youth On Their Own.

“This is a lot of competitors who come together for a good cause, kind of like the Olympics … but our goal is to help these kids reach their dreams to graduate,” said Scott Aguilar, co-chair of the event with Donna Maynard.

Aguilar and Maynard head a committee comprised of members of the Arizona Roofing Contractors Association, which raised more than $20,000 at last year’s tournament. The event has raised nearly $250,000 since its inception 13 years ago.
