For the fourth consecutive year, Bowl for the Cure hosted the Fabulous Four essay contest to give four women affected by breast cancer the trip of a lifetime. Winners will participate in an experience that begins in Dallas, TX and culminates at the 2017 USBC Women's Championships in Baton Rouge, LA. They will receive a tour of the Komen headquarters, a bowling lesson from PWBA members and a tour of the International Bowling Campus. They will also travel to Baton Rouge, LA to participate in the 2017 USBC Women’s Championships and more.
The four 2017 winners have been announced, and they are Donna Angstead of Longmont, CO; Jackie Cluxton of Manchester, OH; Regina Owens of Jacksonville, FL; and Dawn Paolillo of Staten Island, NY. They were chosen based on their compelling story of strength in the battle against breast cancer, what they have done to take action in the fight against this disease.
