Kegel Fights Breast Cancer with Pink Lane Machine


Lake Wales, FL - January 10, 2010: Kegel joins the fight against breast cancer with a pink lane machine to be auctioned off at Bowl Expo, bowling's largest industry event.

In 2006, Virginia Wright founded the Beverly J. Wright Memorial Tournament in honor of a dear friend and long-time active bowler in the community. Each year, the tournament is held at Cypress Lanes in Winter Haven, FL, and Wright has been able to donate thousands of dollars to Susan G. Komen Bowl for the Cure to fund breast cancer research. Thanks to the effort and enthusiasm of Wright, Kegel has decided to take their support for her tournament one step further.

Kegel is currently building a two pink lane machines that will be used at the Women's US Open in Euless, TX. Wright will be joining the employees of Kegel on January 12, 2011 at 2:00 pm at their facility in Lake Wales for a signing of one of these machines. In addition, Kegel will be building two more pink machines for the USBC Women's Championship in Syracuse, NY and the USBC Open Championship in Reno, NV. Virginia has fought hard to raise money for her cause and her reaches are now stretching across the country.

In June 2011, the signed pink lane machine will be showcased at Kegel's booth at Bowl Expo, held in Grapevine, TX. The fate of the other machines is undetermined, but it is likely they will be used to continue to raise money and awareness for breast cancer in 2012. The donated machine will be auctioned off at an event called the Salute to Champions and the funds raised will be split between breast cancer research and the Bowling Hall of Fame. It is estimated that this machine could raise $15,000 for each.

Chris Chartrand, Kegel President, says, "The Bevery J. Wright Tournament is an amazing event run for a great cause. I'm honored to be a part of it and offer support in any way I can." The donation to fund breast cancer research will be made in the name of Kegel and the Beverly J. Wright Memorial Tournament.
