The Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation Strikes Out Bleeding Disorders
Starting on April 1, 2015 our Bowling for Bleeding Disorders fundraising campaign began. It ended on May 3rd with WPCNHF’s 3rd Annual Bowling for Bleeding Disorders bowling marathon.
Bowling for Bleeding Disorders was once again held at Paradise Island Bowl in Neville Township, Pennsylvania. This year, 11 teams bowled for three hours. The cost to bowl was $25 per participant which included shoe rental, bowling, pizza, wings, and unlimited soft drinks.
Prizes were given out to those who got a strike on the red head pin. Trophies were given out during the event to the highest scoring and lowest scoring bowler and also to the highest fundraising team. The highest fundraising team award went to Gino’s Gutter Gang! Way to go!
Nearly 60 people attended the event. The sponsors of the event included Baxter, The Hemophilia Center of Western Pennsylvania, Bayer, Cottrill’s Specialty Pharmacy, Novo Nordisk, Octapharma, and Pfizer. Over $17,000 was raised to benefit the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation.
WPCNHF would like to thank all who attended and participated in making the 3rd Annual Bowling for Bleeding Disorders the most successful one yet!
