Jamestown, NY (Thursday, October 8, 2015)Sunday (October 18th), a group of local bowlers will host the 7th annual Framed in Pink: Bowling Over Breast Cancer at the Jamestown Bowling Company. Formerly known as “Bowl For A Cure”, this charity event will support local breast cancer care at WCA Hospital and pay tribute to loved ones who have battled this deadly disease.

“I think this is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of breast cancer here in our community,” says Sue Lamb, event coordinator. “We all have a loved one who has been battled breast cancer. We are committed to honor those loved ones, promote good breast health, benefit local breast cancer care, and have a good time!”

This bowling event will begin with a sign-in and basket raffle at 12:00 noon, followed by bowling at 1:00 p.m. In addition, Framed in Pink is accepting donations for pink tribute frames that will be displayed in honor or in memory of loved ones who have battled breast cancer. Framed in Pink has raised over $8,000 which benefits local breast cancer care at WCA Hospital. The committee would really like to surpass last year’s totals of $5,000 this year, so even though all of the noon slots are full to bowl, they are going to give an opportunity for those who would like to bowl a second time slot of 9 am.
