Tony O'Rear Bowl for Life raises 12k for St. Jude's Children's Hospital

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB)-- The 15th annual Tony O'Rear Bowl for Life Tournament is in the books and once again, it was a rousing fundraiser for the ongoing battle against childhood cancer in the Tennessee Valley and beyond.

Brainerd's Holiday Bowl once again hosted the yearly affair, as the bowling alley was one of Tony's favorite places in the Scenic City.

Since his passing, Tony's surviving parents have held the tournament as a way to thank St. Jude for everything the hospital did to help their late son.

Tournament organizer Barbara Breedwell says she's appreciative for everyone who participated and helped raise nearly 12 thousand dollars on behalf of St. Jude.

Since it's inception, the tournament has raised more than 175 thousand dollars.
