Bowlers at a previous Lemetta Dause Memorial Bowling Tournament. This year’s tournament, the 10th annual, is August 21.

The tournament is organized by the Madison County Bowling Association (MCBA) in memory of Mrs. Dause, who was cared for by Hospice Care Plus. It is one of MCBA’s largest tournaments of the year, featuring over 100 bowlers plus a raffle, silent auction, bake sale, and door prizes.  All proceeds are donated to Hospice Care Plus in Mrs. Dause’s name. To date, they have raised over $60,000 and are planning their largest tournament yet this year.

These funds help Hospice Care Plus provide compassionate care to everyone, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. 

“We have always been so appreciative of the Madison County Bowling Association’s support of Hospice Care Plus,” says Stefanie Manes, Hospice Care Plus Development Coordinator. “This is one of the most beloved events held in our community. We’re excited to see it back after two years and to be the host of the bake sale.” 

The entry fee is $20 for the 3-6-9 no-tap tournament and is open to all bowlers of any age. There is no need to RSVP, register, or sign up. Simply attend the event on August 21 to participate. The fee includes three games.
