Thanks to the coordinators of the annual East Coast Bowling Center Convention, a fun and lively confab for proprietors from Maine to Florida, veterans always come out winners, as there’s always a special event which benefits BVL.
Held annually in the fall in Atlantic City, NJ, event organizers create an occasion to generate excitement – and contributions – for BVL as well as the sport’s other charities. “We recognize the wonderful programs that BVL does to brighten the days of those that have sacrificed for our country,” said 2013 Convention Chair Jack Moran. “We look for opportunities to add an event that is fun for our attendees and also provides some extra donations.”
This past year was no exception, with a “Jeopardy” style contest of bowling trivia. BVL BOD member Wally Hall served as the BVL contestant and wowed the crowd, and won the game, with his knowledge of bowling history. Keith Hamilton played for the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame and Cathy DeSocio played for Bowl for the Cure.
“It was a fun way to build some excitement and attention for BVL,” explained Wally. “I’m just fortunate some of that bowling trivia was tucked in my memory!”
