Partnerships with Veterans 4 Veterans

We are proud to announce a partnership with a local non-profit and together we’re making our community better. 

Veterans 4 Veterans is a relatively new support group for our local heroes.  “We are a group of veterans and friends of veterans committed to assisting veterans in need with the support and the resources needed to overcome any challenging situation they find themselves in,” says the groups mission statement.

The group helps in many ways, including court-peer advisors, transportation to appointments, housing-search assistance, obtaining benefits, employment services, and recovery coaching, among other valuable services.

Boardwalk Bowl will help this important group with its fundraising.  In September and May we will hold tournaments for its benefit.  (We’ve held these fundraising tournaments for a while on behalf of a national veterans’ group.)

About Pat Pratt

Pat PrattWe have renamed this tournament in honor of a great friend of Boardwalk Bowl who passed away recently.  Pat Pratt was the longtime association manager for the local USBC/ABC affiliate.  In addition, Mr. Pratt spent several years as junior coach, helping generations of bowlers learn the game.

Mr. Pratt, a former member of the U.S. Army, was a big supporter of the Veterans' Issues. It’s only fitting that this local tournament bears his name.
