Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan is supporting the Chautauqua Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Council’s (CASAC) efforts to raise funds for their 10th Annual Bowl-a-thon to help keep kids off drugs. Horrigan is also encouraging other community groups or individuals to help CASAC roll a strike on June 9th.

“Keeping the children of Chautauqua County drug free is a top priority,” said Horrigan. “That’s why I fully support CASAC and their 10th Annual Bowl-a-thon fundraiser. I encourage everyone to sign up and take part in this important event.”
