TODAY The Evening Star reveals the list of businesses and organisations who are keeping the fundraising ball rolling.
All have sent a team or teams to compete in tomorrow's charity bowling night, which is being held in aid of The Star's Somebody's Daughter memorial fund.
It is hoped several thousand pounds will be raised at the night, which is being staged at Kingpin in Martlesham Heath.
Star editor Nigel Pickover said: “There's still time to register your team for what should be a great night for a great cause.
“To have so many teams competing is an indication as to how strongly the community feels about this campaign.”
The memorial fund, run in conjunction with Ipswich Borough Council, was launched in the wake of the killings of Gemma Adams, 25, Tania Nicol, 19, Anneli Alderton, 24, Annette Nicholls, 29, and Paula Clennell, 24.

The money raised will be used to help vulnerable young people in Ipswich. Around £17,500 has been donated to date.
Joint owner, Geoff Sheldrake said: “I have personally been very moved by the whole saga living very close to the scenes in Nacton
and on the old A45.
“We are backing Somebody's Daughter all the way and this is the very least we can do.”
