Thanks to a charity bowling tournament put on by the Jamestown (N.Y.) Police Department’s Kendall Club Police Benevolent Association, a $2,000 check was donated to Kids and Cancer.

The tournament was held at the Jamestown Bowling Co. on Feb. 20.

Every year the Jamestown Police Department KCPBA hosts tournaments like this where money is given back to charitable organizations. Bev Sherman, secretary/treasurer, with Kids and Cancer said the group was “humbled” when approached about the tournament. More than 100 bowlers participated, including members of the Jamestown Police Department, Jamestown Fire Department, probation and emergency services, as well as members of the Kids and Cancer Benefit committee.

Kids and Cancer is an organization based in Bradford that supports families and children going through catastrophic illnesses or pediatric cancers. Since its inception in 1998, Kids and Cancer has granted more than $300,000 to those in need.

The Kids and Cancer Benefit will hold its 19th annual motorcycle benefit run on July 23. Riders are invited to cruise through the beautiful scenery of northwestern Pennsylvania and the Allegany National Forest and support families and medical facilities in the process.
