Next week, the FBI will host their third annual Bowl-a-thon and raffle fundraiser to benefit human trafficking survivors.

This open event is hosted by the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association. Funds generated will be donated to local charities as well as the Human Trafficking Committee (HTC) of the nonprofit Citizens Academy Alumni Association.

HTC assists survivors of sexual exploitation and educates the public about human trafficking’s effects on society.

The event will be held March 7 at Sunset Lanes in Beaverton from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Each ticket costs $30. Visit their website to register.

The charities benefitting from the fundraiser this year have not yet been named.

Last year, the event raised thousands of dollars for donation to the organizations Hope 82, House of Engedi, and assault prevention group Just Yell Fire.
