For the 8th straight year Lubbock USBC and "Susan G Komen For The Cure" have teamed up to put on this fundraiser, aimed at striking out cancer.
"To be able to come and have fun, while you're donating or contributing to the fundraiser, its neat neat thing to be able to do," said Linda McNutt.
McNutt is a stage four breast cancer survivor. She says it means a lot to have such a high turnout at the "Bowl for the Cure" fundraiser.
"I was diagnosed 10 years ago and a lot of the people that are here today were there for me," said McNutt.
Organizer Becky Jones says this annual event has gained popularity in the last few years.
"Oh I think its progressed tremendously I think the first year we probably had maybe 30 or 40 bowlers come out. Like I said we are well over 100 this year so it keeps growing," said Jones.
Jones says the Lubbock "Bowl for the Cure" event is part of a national fund-raising campaign. She says part of its success is that its fun for the whole family.
"We've had a five year old come out and bowl today, I think our oldest one was maybe 80 so any age just come out and have a good time," said Jones.
And the money raised locally, will stay right here on the South Plains
"It stays in the local community," said Alison Robinson, also a breast cancer survivor.
"We chose to donate ours locally so it will stay here," said Jones.
If you missed this Bowl for a Cure event you can attend one next weekend in Plainview. And these volunteers are already planning to continue this event next year.
"Maybe one of these years we wont have to do that because they will have found the cure for breast cancer," said McNutt.
