BVL ( Bowlers to veteran's Link ) is 1 of 2 major charities that USBC ( governing body of organized bowling ) has adopted as a worthy organization to help raise funds for. Our local chartered association has been raising funds through contributions from our local bowlers. We do this at our local and state tournament and social events. We are just one of many local associations across the country that do this every year. Why? Because this organization uses 90% or more of the donations for the veteran's hospitals, veteran's homes and troops stationed overseas. They also return to the local organization that donates, over 95% of their donation to give to a local organization if they ask. In our case we have adopted the Veteran's Home in Edison NJ. For the past 5 year's our officers have presented a check to the center in November. On November 5th we will again be presenting a check for $2700 out of the $3000 dollars we raised this past year. It is a very satisfying yet humbling experience to present this money to the veterans who have proudly served our country.
