Bowlers to Veterans Link,
Cancer Hospitals Benefit
from NYS Bowlers' Generosity
NOVEMBER 11, 2013 -- The New York State USBC is proud and honored to salute our veterans on Veterans Day and to announce that a contribution of $2,000 has been made to the Bowlers to Veterans Link as a result of fundraisers conducted at the 2012-13 state championship tournaments.
All told, donations from New York State USBC members in the amount of $23,000 were sent to BVL in Fairfax, Va., Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City ($10,500) and Roswell Park Alliance Foundation in Buffalo ($10,500). The donations to the hospitals were awarded as follows: $3,500 towards breast cancer research, $3,500 towards prostate cancer research and $3,500 to juvenile cancer research.
These contributions were made possible by the donations gathered at the various NYS USBC state tournaments and through designated fundraisers. Additional moneys collected last season were placed in the NYS USBC’s youth scholarship fund.
Looking ahead, the NYS USBC will be conducting two Pathways Fundraisers this season – one in January 2014 and another in July 2014. Both will be based on the “evening number,” and all proceeds will go to benefit cancer programs, youth scholarships and other charities.
Pathways Fundraiser tickets have been distributed to NYS USBC directors and youth committee members. For a list of directors and youth committee members, go to the Officers page of this website. Tickets are $5 each. To purchase a ticket(s), contact the NYS USBC office at 585-343-3736 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
