There's already a pot of gold at the end of this Rainbow fundraiser.
Tickets for the Feb. 28 "Roll a Rainbow" bowling event at Al-Mar Lanes have sold out. The bowling and other activities will be from 6 to 8 p.m.
Supporters can still buy general admission-non bowling-silent auction tickets for $10 per person.
Proceeds benefit Rainbow Cooperative Preschool, which has been struggling financially.
The school aims for 50 children enrolled but has been in the 30s the last two years. Tuition is $950 a year or $633 a year, depending on the age of the 3 to 5 year old and how many days are attended.
"I would like to see it (the school) be around. It's a great place," said Stephanie Good, who is chairing the committee organizing the fundraiser and has a 4-year-old son enrolled at Rainbow.
A cooperative preschool is owned and operated by the parents. At this type of school, parents work in the classroom with the teacher, raise funds for operations, serve on committees such as field trip and equipment maintenance, and even clean the West Wooster Street building.

Bowling Green has renewed its partnership with Efficiency Smart through 2016, extending the initial three-year contract that began in January 2011.
Efficiency Smart provides energy efficiency services for electric customers of Bowling Green Municipal Utilities. Through the end of November 2013, the partnership has resulted in 15,442 megawatt-hours (MWh) of energy saved in Bowling Green, more than double the three-year goal.
Under the new agreement, the cost to participate in Efficiency Smart will decrease with no impact on the level of services participants receive. Most of the provisions will remain the same during the next service period, including a 70 percent performance guarantee and independently verified savings claims.
"Efficiency Smart has been very successful in helping all of our customers reduce their long term energy costs," said BG Director of Utilities Brian O'Connell. "Efficiency smart offers valuable technical support to help customers improve energy efficiency, and we are pleased to continue to offer these services to our customers."

Dick Morris
Sentinel-Tribune Vice President and General Manager Dick Morris was honored earlier this month with the Ohio Newspaper Association's President's Award. The award is presented annually by the president of the Board of Trustees to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the ONA and Ohio's newspaper industry.
As past president of the board, Morris led the ONA during two years of extreme challenge and transition, according to ONA officials.
Morris began his career in newspapers in 1977 at the Galion Inquirer, where he brought his accounting skills to the business office. By 1980 he was accounting manager, and by 1986 he was vice president and general manager of the newspaper. In 1990, he joined the Sentinel-Tribune as general manager, and a year later was elected vice president of The Sentinel Company, overseeing all aspects of the operation, which has been owned by the Haswell family for more than a century.
