Members of the Lake Shore bowling team are seeking the good Samaritan who picked up the tab for breakfast Saturday.
Before the regional competition in Westland, team members met for breakfast at a Bob Evans. A man sitting in a nearby table paid for breakfast for the 12-person party, and left a "very nice tip" for the waitress.
"Needless to say, we were all astonished and very appreciative," Jim DeLong wrote in an email. "We told the kids that this was a good example of a "pay it forward" lesson and that we expected each of them to do a "pay it forward" to some one else."
The good deed by the anonymous diner may have inspired the team - the boys finished in second place at the regional team event and will compete this weekend in state competition. Additionally, Cody Lowry finished second in the regional singles event and will also compete in states.
Lake Shore officials hope to identify the man, and thank him for his kind deed.
