2017 Bowl for Kids' Sake
That’s the amount of money raised during the 2017 Bowl for Kids' Sake event in early February! This event is hosted annually in support of the Big Sisters Big Brothers of Greater Lafayette.
It was an honor for Lueken Chiropractic & Wellness Group to be a part of making changes in our community. A huge THANK YOU to those of you who supported our team.
