GENEVA -- The phone rang the other day at the Boys & Girls Club of Geneva and Makis Hodge was on the line.
"Let's take some kids bowling,'' Hodge said.
That's Makis and Dario Hodge, the owners of Traditional Automotive Group.
Ten Boys & Girls Club kids answered their call and Monday afternoon showed up at Doug Kent's Rose Bowl Lanes in Newark. They were greeted with pizza, soda and bowling shoes. For more than a few, it was a new experience.
Makis and Dario stopped by to make sure the pizza had hit the spot and to tell the kids he wants them to get out more often.
"Let me know where you'd like to go and we'll see if we can make it happen,'' Makis said. "I remember. It's good to get out.''
Tradition has outlets in Newark and Geneva and is part of an Atlanta-based group. They are corporate supporters of the Boys & Girls Club, but beyond money, they give time and inspiration as well.
