The Somerset-Hunterdon Women's Bowling Association is the governing body for women bowlers of both Somerset and Hunterdon counties. While looking for ways to help out in their community, they reached out to their bowlers and asked for donations of lap blankets and quilts to present to patients at The Steeplechase Cancer Center who are undergoing chemotherapy. This charge was met with overwhelming success!
In addition to pouring their hearts and hands into these beautifully crafted items, the bowlers collect cash donations at their tournaments and have contributed generously to the Oncology Program at our cancer center for the past two years.
Nancy Vurckio, 1st Vice President states, "Our 'Strike Out Cancer' project is one that is very special to all our board members and bowlers alike. We know that The Steeplechase Cancer Center is grateful for our donations. But, we are equally as grateful just knowing that we can make a difference in the lives of those fighting this dreadful illness."
