Bowl for the Cure



 Bowl for the Cure Banner Ad 2013 

The United States Bowling Congress (USBC), through its Bowl for the Cure program (see Bowl for the Cure® program information), is bringing the USBC Bowl for the Cure® Bowling Classic to 9 markets to help raise funds and awareness about breast cancer. USBC has partnered with 300 centers (subsidiary of AMF Bowling) to host these fundraising events.

In connection with each Bowling Classic, 300 has committed to renting out all nine of their centers on various dates in 2013. They will also be providing marketing support, including concierge services (dedicated wait staff sporting pink ties at every lane), bowling competition management, food and beverage service, silent auction, goody bags and giveaways, and more.


More Information:     

Bowl for the Cure®, is an initiative organized by the United States Bowling Congress through The Bowling Foundation. Since the program’s inception in 2000, Bowl for the Cure® has raised more than $10 million for Komen for the Cure while raising bowlers’ awareness about breast cancer screening, treatment and support.

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.
