A Message From Patter Birsic

Welcome to the National Pancreas Foundation's PancreasBowl! I invite you to join me in a fun time of bowling and fellowship for a GREAT cause. The event will be held on Sunday, October 24 at Paradise Island Bowl and Beach located in Neville Island, Pittsburgh. My goal is $5,000 and I am planning to meet (or beat) that goal with your help!

As you know, we lost Tom's sister, Joan Birsic Dawson, to pancreatic cancer at the young age of 40 in 1997. As a result of the horrific experiences the Birsic family endured during Joan's fight, we started the NPF. At that time, there was no source of information or support for those suffering from pancreatic diseases. NPF has grown over the almost 25 years, providing a wide range of programs for both the patient and medical communities- from our Research Grant Program to Camp Hope- a camp for kids with pancreatitis.

The NPF leadership envisons expanding existing programs and and adding new ones..but we can't do it without your help. Thank you in advance for you your time and consideration.

PancreasBowl

About This Event

PancreasBowl is the National Pancreas Foundation’s signature national fundraiser. Patients, family members, caregivers, and medical professionals across America come together to have fun and raise money to support the National Pancreas Foundation. Fundraising teams collect donations and then celebrate their success by attending a local bowling party.

Bowling events will be held in cities throughout the United States between October and November 2021. 


So what are you waiting for? Start your team today! Partnering with the NPF through PancreasBowl has a positive, long-lasting impact on helping patients and one day finding a cure for pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis.

PancreasBowl is a fun and easy way to positively impact someone’s life afflicted with pancreas disease (pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis). Just follow the simple steps below:
1) Please contact David Bakelman at david@pancreasfoundation.org to coordinate a bowling date and center in your local community.  
2) Start a team – Teams are formed with five or six members. Consider creating a team with family, friends, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, or co-workers.
3) Start fundraising – We require a minimum donation of $100 or $150 for a family of four.
4) Start bowling – Once you reach your goal, it’s time to have fun! You’ll receive two free games of bowling (shoe and ball rental included) and a complimentary PancreasBowl t-shirt!
