BEAUMONT, Texas — Crossroads Bowling Center hosts a plethora of tournaments throughout the year but its most recent was different from the rest because it was held to help out a member of its bowling family.
Aaron Nance has been bowling in the area for decades. He's competed on a local and national level.
When Nance's health interfered with his bowling, Crossroads hosted the Midsummer Clash Tournament.
"Aaron has been a long time bowler friend," said tournament organizer Nancy Bergeron. "He's bowled on our state, national, local association teams, leagues. He's been president, different officers within the association and just a very dear friend. We wanted to help him out."
Through tournament entries, multiple raffles and donations, the tournament raised $2,300 for Nance.
"I'm grateful for it, I just don't know how to act," said Nance. "Just, nobody has ever really done anything like that, you know. Just one of them things that I didn't think everybody cared like that I guess. It's just one of them things, you know, but it's like a family. It really is. I feel real fortunate that they did that for me."
