Brewster, NY - During the 2022-23 Bowling Season, the Pathway Committee from the New York State USBC raised close to $28,000 which will be donated to four different organizations. The money was raised with raffles throughout the year.
At our six state tournaments the directors ran 50/50 Raffles, Bowling Ball Raffles and Lottery Tree Raffle which raised the bulk of our money. We also had our annual June & July Calendar Sales and FundCrazr Football Sweepstakes Ticket Sales.
Roswell Park Cancer Center will receive $10,000. Founded in 1898 and operating from a 29-acre campus on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) near downtown Buffalo, New York, Roswell Park today remains the only comprehensive cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Upstate New York, and one of only four NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in all of New York. In the past year, Roswell Park teams cared for more than 46,000 patients. Roswell Park helps set international standards in cancer care through its role as a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and consistently earns patient-satisfaction scores that are among the highest in the country.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center will also receive $10,000. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) is a cancer treatment and research institution in Manhattan. It was founded in 1884 as the New York Cancer Hospital. MSKCC is one of 72 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers. It had already been renamed and relocated, to its present site, when the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research was founded in 1945, and built adjacent to the hospital. The two medical entities formally coordinated their operations in 1960, and formally merged as a single entity in 1980. Its main campus is located at 1275 York Avenue between 67th and 68th Streets in Manhattan.
In U.S. News & World Report's 2021–2022 Best Hospitals, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is ranked the second-best hospital for cancer care in the nation after MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
The Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL) will receive $3,000. For more than 75 years, the BVL has supported America’s veteran and active duty service men and women through myriad recreational therapy programs and services to speed recuperation and boost morale to brighten their lives.
Founded in 1942, BVL is the sport of bowling’s oldest and most successful charity – raising over $56 million for this cause.
The final $5,000 will go to the NYUSBC Scholarship Program. Every year the NYSUSBC Awards $12,000 to $15,000 to the youth bowlers in New York.
“We couldn’t do this without them,” Pathways Committee Chair Randy Snyder said. “We would like to thank our bowlers around the state for their help in supporting our Pathways activities.”
