The second annual Bowl for a Cure bowling event, hosted by Southside 48 Bowling League, will be Sunday, Feb. 27, at Southside Bowl on Virginia Avenue. Last year's event raised $6,599.42 for Susan G.

In addition to door prizes and raffles, the event will include a silent auction of items donated by local businesses. This year, bowlers hope to raise more than $15,000 to contribute to Bowl for the Cure, a year-round fundraising and awareness effort organized by the United States Bowling Congress in support of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure effort.
