Bowling tournament raises thousands for breast cancer research

The fourth annual Beverly J Wright Memorial bowling tournament was held recently, and it seems that everyone, participants and supporters, came out looking like winners in the end, reports.

The event raised more than $8,000 for the Susan G Komen Foundation to help with the battle against breast cancer, and it has raised more than $29,000 over the last four years of it being held.

The event is named in honor of Beverly J Wright, an area bowler who succumbed to the disease in 2006.

"We were very pleased by the turnout," Mary Ann Watson, activity director of Cypress Lanes and president of the Wright Foundation, told the news source. "We were excited, awestruck and overwhelmed by the community's response."

Those who attended the fundraiser were witness to some great bowling and were able to bid in a silent auction to help raise funds.

The Susan G Komen Foundation has invested more than 1.5 billion in breast cancer research since it was founded in 1982.ADNFCR-2795-ID-19902163-ADNFCR
