HAGERSTOWN, Md (WDVM)–Hagerstown community members came out to Southside Bowl for the 11th annual Bowl for the Cure event.
At least 160 people attended the event. Those who participated raised at least $6,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation which supports finding a cure for breast cancer. Bowl for the Cure event planners say the event is open to the public and that it gives people a fun way to raise money for a cause that has touched the lives of many.
“Most everyone here that is bowling, we have probably all been touched by somebody that has either been a cancer survivor or we’ve lost a loved one that has died from cancer. So the goal is we’re hoping this money will be the tipping point that finds a cure,” said Patrick Rossiter Chairman for the Bowl for the Cure committee.
Bowl for the Cure has raised close to $100,000 over the past ten years.
