The other 25% goes to cancer research such as a vaccine that will aid the body's immune system in fighting the cancer cells. This research is being done at the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute of Florida and the University of Miami.

A special thanks to Alisa Fisher who donated her $70 50/50 winnings and Kevin Garcia who contributed his share of his third place winnings to the cause.

Long Standing County Record Broken:

On Wednesday Feb.18th Jeremy Mooney broke the record for a triplicate by one pin by bowling 279 three times. The previous record, held by John Manis stood for many years. Unfortunately, we don't know how long because dates were not kept as part of our records

Jeremy also holds the record for the highest average in a season 245.


250 Club:
If you are a man and bowled a 250 or better, you can become a member of the 250 Bowlers Club of Palm Beach County. The club has tournaments every other month rotating through the houses in the county. The format alternates between singles and mixed doubles i.e. man & women. The singles event is for 250 club members only but the women in the doubles can be any female bowler. On occasion, the club teams up with the women's 225 club for the tournament. The club uses the money raised in these tournaments to award a scholarship to a YOUTH bowler. A dinner is held at the end of the year at a local establishment. The dues are $15 a year and you must bowl in at least one tournament. If you need more information call Candid Ayala @ 561-683-6299 or email at candytherock@gmail.com. Click Here for an Application.
