Spotlight: Metro Phoenix USBC

A Community-Wide BVL Commitment

It takes… a four-member BVL committee; a USBC BOD comprised of the President, four Vice Presidents, 20 directors, 10 ambassadors; area pro sports teams including those from the  NFL, NHL, NBA, WNBA and Arena Football; local bowling pro shops; area restaurants; and two sisters that all help make the Metro Phoenix USBC the success that it is.

Kick off starts with USBC leadership attending the organizational meetings in August with a review of the BVL campaign.  There, they get a commitment from the league for donations, anywhere from $1 per bowler to a “Pass the Hat” opportunity during the fund-raising drive.

They return to the leagues in the beginning of October to collect funds.

They work with all the Pro Sports teams in the area and solicit items for raffles:  a football from the Cardinals; a mini hockey stick and puck from the raffle itemsSundogs; and four game tickets from each of the franchises. 

Local Bowling Pro Shops pitch in with donations of equipment or bowling lessons.

Gift certificates are also acquired from restaurants.

And, it’s all rounded out with two sisters that make quilts to raffle.

But guess who has a better time?  The thousands of veterans throughout Arizona whose lives have been made much brighter thanks to the commitment of a community.
