THANK YOU to everyone (human and dinosaur) who made The Dude 2017 a success! Everyone who clicked a link, donated a dollar or a minute is a part of this year’s campaign. Thanks to your efforts, we have raised over $40,250 so far, and counting! See below for the results of the bowling and fundraising competition.
Every dollar raised goes to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to further their mission: to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Because of your support, we are able to continue to fund these initiatives right here in Eastern Pennsylvania. Much of the credit goes to our fantastic teams for the fundraising dedication.
Congratulations and Take ‘er easy’s to all of our winners and to everyone who knocked down a pin!

We want to recognize our generous sponsors: Blank Rome, BrainDo, Heathery Project and The Martin Architectural Group. The in-kind support from Chorus Photography, Yards Brewing Company, Tin Lizard Brewing Company, and South Bowl was truly appreciated as well, and from all of the contributing businesses and restaurants who donated prizes. Our gratitude goes out to South Bowl for providing us with a perfect home once again, and to Philadelphia Brewing Company for jumping in at the last minute to host the official after party. Hats off to Athensville, The Parsnip Revolt and The New Initials who rocked our after party. TDHC would not be possible if it were not for all of these collective efforts.
Tournament photos courtesy Chorus Photography will be posted on Facebook soon!
