Who we are

We are friends of Walter "Rock" Joseph, Jr., who was taken from our lives way to early. In 2012, after his sudden passing, we decided to raise money for his family with a memorial bowling tournament. In 2013, his family told us to take the money from our second memorial tournament and pay it forward. 

What we do

We took their directive, and started Rock Joseph Memorial Scholarship to provide higher education scholarships to youth bowlers in the North Central Texas area. We started by presenting in conjunction with the NTXUSBC Youth City Tournament. 

How you can help

You can join us at Rock & Bowl, held every summer, at Forum Bowl in Grand Prairie, Texas. Our next tournament is July 29th, 2023. If you can't attend there are still several ways that you can support us. Visit our How Can I Help page for the available options, or the Our Sponsors page to see who supports us.
