September 8, 2014 (Englewood, CO):
OB Cues kicks off third annual Juniors Pool Month at the APA National Team Championships by enlisting the help of “Duchess of Doom” Allison Fisher.
The Hall-of-famer volunteered her time for three days of signing autographs, posing for photos, and taking challenge matches at $20 per person to raise funds for the Billiard Education Foundation (BEF).
100% of all money raised is being donated to the BEF.
In total, $1,420 was raised thanks to the 71 fans that challenged Fisher to support the organization.
“We are proud to say that Allison plays and breaks with OB Cues but even prouder to host a living legend who wanted to spend 3 days in our booth raising money for a great cause,” said Shane Sinnott, Director of Sales & Marketing for OB Cues. “The BEF truly appreciates and counts on initiatives like this throughout the industry to stay alive. Huge Thanks & Kudos to OB Cues, Allison Fisher, and all the challengers for your support! We are ever so grateful,” said Samm Diep-Vidal, Executive Director of the BEF.
