The purpose for this thread is to rally support for the Billiard Education Foundation (BEF). And to help provide encouragement, I am offering to match all forum member contributions over the next week up to a total of $500.

The BEF is a great organization and a good "cause." They provide various programs for juniors in the billiards community. The BEF funds academic scholarships, produces the Junior National 9-Ball Championships, and sponsors juniors to attend the WPA World Junior 9-Ball Championships. The BEF also encourages youth to stay in school and further their education while building and maintaining a lifelong love of billiards through the “Pool In School” program. For more information, visit their website here: http://www.billiardeducation.org/

To contribute, go to the BEF website (http://www.billiardeducation.org). Under "Donate to Help Kids" on the left side of the screen, enter the amount you want to contribute and click on the "Donate Now" button. If you prefer to not use PayPal, you can send a check or money order directly to the BEF. The address and contact info can be found here (http://www.billiardeducation.org/index.php?option=com_contact&catid=12&Itemid=3).

Again, I will match (up to $500) all donations the BEF receives within the next week (by October 3). Please send me a PM or e-mail when you make a donation so I can track how much I need to contribute.

FYI, the BEF is a non-profit organization and your gift will qualify as a charitable donation, which you can claim on your taxes as a deduction.

Please contribute whatever you can, even if it is only a few bucks.

Thank you for your time and for helping me support the BEF.
