PBA Stars Help Raise $300,000 For Jeff Gordan 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 Foundation 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 
endowment 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
