I wanted to announce that Susan G. Komen for the Cure is pleased to be the recipient of $5000 raised through the Bowl for the Cure® bowling event in Torrance, an event organized by the United States Bowling Congress. Since the program’s inception in 2000, Bowl for the Cure® has raised more than $7 million for Komen for the Cure while raising bowlers’ awareness about breast cancer screening, treatment and support. I was humbled to host this event for the second time in a row!
USBC’s bowling leagues designate one league session of their choice each season as a Bowl for the Cure® event. February is Bowl for the Cure® month, a time when USBC leagues across the nation often organize Bowl for the Cure® events. Bowlers can designate one league night to donate a specific amount, such as a nickel per pin, or stage pledge nights, raffles and auctions.
Local bowling associations also are encouraged to team up with Komen Affiliates to conduct a Bowl for the Cure® event for the entire community in their service area. For more information about Bowl for the Cure®, visit www.bowlingfoundation.org.
