Specialty Plate Program Needs Florida Proprietor Support

by Gianmarc Manzione 0

College-bound students in Florida and bowling’s BVL Fund would be the beneficiaries of a specialty car license plate program developed by Andy White, the General Manager of Brandon Crossroads Bowl in Tampa, Fla.

White came up with the idea while serving as a director for the Bowling Centers Association of Florida. He was able to get Sen. Tom Lee (R-Dist. 24) to endorse the program, and now needs other center operators in the Sunshine State to contact their senators and representatives to rally support.

According to White, the funds raised through the special plate sales would be divided among 28 state bowling associations for awarding to youth bowlers in the form of college scholarships. Some of the money raised would go to the Bowlers to Veterans Link, which provides programs, services and more for America’s veterans.

“We need your help by emailing your local representatives and have them endorse the plate,” White said in a notice to fellow Florida center operators. “We have only a short time span to get this to the governor to have him sign [it], so please take a few minutes to help get this bill passed.”

Florida center operators who have any questions may contact White at 813-621-2363.
