The California USBC Association has continued on the traditions of Charity donations from our previous CSBA and CWBA state associations prior to merging. The two main Charity groups is the Bowlers to Veteran Link (BVL) and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Since 1950, the California BVL fund has donated over $9 million dollars to our veterans.
With donations to California Military Hospitals, VA Medical Centers, Outreach Centers and California Veteran’s Homes we have provided items for rehabilitation therapy, recreation items, Outbound programs and items to enhance the environment . Many of these items never make the government priority lists and, for bowlers, BVL – The California Bowler’s BVL Fund, has become a mission. The California USBC Association THANKS all of you on behalf of the Veterans of California.
Bowlers raise $656,500 Nationwide to Fight Breast Cancer
Bowlers nationwide rallied their families, friends and communities to raise $656,500 this season for the fight against breast cancer, bringing the Bowl for the Cure® program’s six-year total to nearly $4.5 million.
During the inaugural United States Bowling Congress Convention in Orlando, Fla., on April 22, 2006, bowlers and breast cancer survivors Diane Bower, Easton, Pa.; and Betty Knott, Columbus, Ohio, presented a check to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation representatives.
“It is the commitment and teamwork of the USBC and the bowling communities that have made this program such an outstanding success,” said Cindy Schneible, Komen Foundation vice president of cause related marketing and sponsorship. “You bowl for each other and you bowl for people everywhere who have been touched by breast cancer. You are making a difference in the world.”
