BVL Board Chair Darlene Baker accepted a donation of $35,000 from Billiard and Bowling Institute of America President Chris Chartrand at the Bowling Proprietors Association of America convention held recently in Las Vegas.
Explained Chartrand, “We know BVL is a worthy cause and one founded and supported by the bowling industry – and we thought it was only fitting that we make this donation here at Bowl Expo.”
The donation will be used to fully fund BVL’s regular bowling parties for wounded warriors recuperating at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
“This is an unexpected, yet wonderful contribution from the membership at BBIA,” noted Baker. “We are truly thankful to our friends at BBIA for this generous gift. Imagine the good it will do for our wounded warriors and their families.”
