Black Widow Foundation Donates $4,500 to American Juniors
Black Widow Foundation Donates $4,500 to American Juniors for World Championships in China!
Hall of Famer Jeanette Lee aka “The Black Widow” and her nonprofit Black Widow Foundation(BWF) reached out to the billiard community to offer support for the nine young players who represented the U.S. at the WPA World Junior 9-Ball Championships held on November 15-19 in Shanghai, China.
Lee’s ability to bring the industry together for a greater cause is commendable. After speaking with each individual of the North American team, Lee and her foundation, through personal fundraising and the support of the APA, Poison Cues, Ozone Billiards, and Mike Connolly, awarded $4,500 to those who still needed it.
Lee has turned her fundraising efforts into a year round campaign and adds,” any monies that come in for the world event [now] will go to next year’s kids.”
Look for Lee at the Super Billiards Expo in Oaks, PA April 16-19 where she’ll be continuing her fundraising drive at her Black Widow Foundation booth. Any juniors and family members interested in volunteering their time to support her efforts during this event may contact her directly through her website, www.blackwidowfoundation.org.
The Black Widow Foundation and its founder are committed to improving the sport of pocket billiards by encouraging, supporting, and mentoring our junior players – the future of our sport. The Foundation also organizes and hosts the unique Black Widow Juniors Camp each year to cultivate aspiring young players, not only in areas of the sport but also in their lives.
