ELMHURST – Sweet Adelines members of Elmhurst will join more than 23,000 international members in Bowling for Barbershop events worldwide.

This Friday, Sweet Adelines members and friends from the Elmhurst-based Choral-Aires Chorus will perform and bowl at Wheaton Bowl, 2031 N. Gary Ave., at 7 p.m.

The worldwide women's organization is dedicated to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education, competition and performance.

The Choral-Aires have been raising donations to help members perform in Hawaii at the international competition this November.
