Dear Bowler,

Well the 4th of July has come and gone already, that means the summer is upon us.  We are just finishing up with the awards banquets so now we can complete the season ending paperwork that needs to be done to get the yearbook published.  A fresh new season is right around the corner. We hope you enjoy the nice weather and have a great summer.

2012 Women's State Tournament

hosted by Grand Rapids USBC


Whenever there is a women's state tournament in our town one of the ways we earn additional money to help support the GGRUSBC Association is sell merchandise (shirts, towels, etc.).  This has been a tradition for the women's tournaments as far back as I can remember.  Last year when Western Wayne hosted the tournament besides selling merchandise they raffled off blankets with the pink ribbon designs and donated the money to the National Susan G. Komen Foundation.  We chose to follow in their footsteps as far as the blankets are concerned the only exception is that we chose to keep the money local (in GRAND RAPIDS).  On Thursday June 14 at our awards dinner held at Lincoln Country Club we were able to donate $10,001.00 to the West Michigan Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.  Tanya Horan the Develpment Coordinator was on hand to accept our check and gave a little insight as to how the money is distributed.  75% of all funds raised local stay local and 25% goes to national for research.  Here in West Michigan we are lucky because the VanAndel Research gets that 25%.  So for us all the funds stay local and get granted locally to organizations who give education, screening and treatment.


Thanks to all the people who donated their time to making the blankets, they did a great job along with the people that sold the tickets.  And of course to all the people that bought the tickets, thank you for your support!!!
