PBA Stars Help Raise $300,000 for Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation

PBA Hall of Famers Mike Aulby and Parker Bohn III, along with PBA Tour champions Danny Wiseman and Doug Kent, participated in the 10th annual “Jeff Gordon Bowling Ball” in Indianapolis on July 28, an event that raised more than $300,000 in support of Jeff Gordon’s Children’s Found- ation and Riley Hospital for Children.

The annual bowling fundraiser has generated more than $1.58 million to Riley Hospital for Children since its inception. In addition, Gordon made a pledge of $1.5 million to Riley Children’s Foundation in 2010, establishing the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation Pediatric Cancer Research Fund.

Funds from the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation are creating a $1 million endow- ment for research conducted in partnership between Riley Hospital and the Wells Center for Pediatric Research at the Indiana University School of Medicine. The remaining $500,000 is addressing immediate research needs at Riley Hospital.
