We have some exciting news!
Last year before Christmas, Chad Glines and Chris Lucas, co-founders of Perfect Strike, partnered for a great cause to assist Kelly Ray in surprising an unexpecting single mother with a gift to make their Christmas special. In just 24 hours they managed to raise $1500 through personal donations, personal contacts, and social media outreach. This was an overwhelming success. We have now decided to do this annually in an effort to help multiple single parents during the holidays.
We will be holding a fundraiser unique to the sport of bowling. Kelly Ray and Chris Lucas will be attempting to break a Guinness World Record for Highest Total Pinfall by a pair/duo in a 24-hour period. Forum Bowl will be hosting the event on August 8th, 2020. Perfect Strike will live stream the event without any break. We encourage people to donate per pin knocked down or by giving a single donation.
The current world record is 37,653 pins knocked down. Chris and Kelly will need to average 1569 pins an hour to break this record. Here at Perfect Strike we believe these two will get this done. So please not only help root them on but consider in donating to the cause. We will have a donation link up as the record attempt gets closer.
Kelly Ray is a NCTUSBC Hall of Famer, PBA Champion, champion at many other tournaments (including 2 Red River titles), from the great Ray bowling family, and owner of Fairway Roofing. Kelly is not only one of the most respected bowlers in the sport, but also has one of the biggest hearts for giving. He routinely will surprise unsuspecting couples with a free meal while out. We are proud to call Kelly Ray a friend.
Chris Lucas is a PBA Champion, runs multiple tournaments throughout North Texas, and has run some of the most successful leagues in DFW. As co-founder of Perfect Strike he is able to provide live streaming to bowling leagues and local tournaments, as well as hosting the “hardest 16 gamer” tournament in bowling held annually in Dallas, TX. Also being highly respected in the sport, he’s always looking to help and make someone smile.
