BEVERLY J WRIGHT MEMORIAL FUND, INC.
While it may be hard to believe, the 14th Annual Beverly J. Wright Memorial Bowling Tournament weekend is just around the corner. The success which was realized over the past thirteen years would not have been possible without the outstanding support of the many corporate and individual sponsors who contributed thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise. Through their generosity, the BJW Memorial Fund has raised over One Hundred and Sixty-Five Thousand Dollars ($165,000.00) which has been donated to Breast Cancer Research.
Now that the tournament has expanded to a full weekend with four separate competitions, July 18-19, 2020 promises to be bigger than ever. Last year, the tournaments drew over 400 entries from across the state of Florida. Seventeen counties were represented by top athletes as well as recreational bowlers who helped raise money for breast cancer research and patient support. Along with Cypress Lanes in Winter Haven, which hosts the weekend tournaments, Kegel in Lake Wales also leads the way as a local community sponsor.
The Board of Directors of the Beverly J. Wright Memorial Fund is currently accepting sponsors to contribute to this year’s tournaments. We hope you will offer your support to this worthy cause. Sponsorship may be in the form of a direct cash contribution and/or products and/or services which may be used in our tournament raffle and silent auction. Your generous support can help make this weekend of tournaments the most successful to date.
Bev Wright was well known in the Florida bowling community. She volunteered her time on local bowling association committees, promoting and competing in the sport she loved so much. Bev’s endless optimism and fierce determination to live was heartfelt by all her friends during her battle with breast cancer. Her last request was to “Keep the Ball Rolling” and so, in her honor, the Beverly J. Wright Memorial Tournaments were created as the most fitting way to pay tribute to her.
