Got Advice?

We get lots of inquiries from women who have had their health care coverage either eliminated or drastically reduced. This is of obvious concern to us because of breast health issues.

Do you have any recommendations that we could pass on as to where to go for low cost or sliding scale mammograms, well woman visits, and follow-up care? Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. We will whatever information you supply available to everybody, and together we will try to keep each other healthy.

Everybody Loves Our Raffle Prizes and Door Prizes

One of the reasons that so many people enjoy our annual bowl-a-thon is because of the raffle prizes and door prizes. We have been blessed every year with a wide array of donations, ranging from small to oh-my-goodness. We are always delighted to get donations of goods, services, gift cards, or whatever suits your fancy.

During the dog days of summer, there are sales galore -- especially now that the economy is still staggering. Check those clearance tables for items that might be a great giveaway at our charity event.

Even if you don't know one end of a bowling pin from the other, there is always something to keep you entertained at our annual bowl-a-thon.

Got Pins? We Need Them!

We are looking for bowling pins to act as "blanks" for our bowling pin decorating competition. If you have souvenir pins that you want to find a good home after an extreme makeover, we would love to have them.

We display entries at the annual bowl-a-thon, and there seems to be no end to the creative skills of our community members. We've had everything from bowling pin chickens and Red Hat ladies, to gorgeous miniature landscapes and little piggies.

Welcome to the B4TC Blog!

We are establishing a blog on the Bowling 4 The Cure site to permit conversation, observations, the sharing of information, and plain old socializing. If you have news that you'd like to share with our community of breast cancer fighters and the people who love them, this is the place to do it.

If you are new to this website, welcome aboard. Remember -- October 4 is right around the corner and it's the day we wait for all year -- our annual bowl-a-thon charity event at Lakeview Lanes in Sun City! So mark your calendars, and watch the website for updates.
