A crowd of the area’s finest first responders traded in their badges and emergency gear for a ball and a pair of bowling shoes on Saturday, as Foundation 58 held its 15th annual Bowling for the Brave fundraiser at Chacko’s Family Bowling Center. Foundation 58, a nonprofit based out of the Hazleton area founded around 18 years ago, raises money to provide financial assistance to firefighters, police officers and emergency service workers in need of help combating illnesses or injuries. The organization’s founder, Keith Mhley, said that Foundation 58 came about in memory of Mhley’s uncle, former Hazleton City Deputy Fire Chief Gabriel Mhley. “My uncle unfortunately went through a long battle with cancer, and he passed away,” Keith Mhley said on Saturday. “All of our donations and proceeds go toward those first responders who need help.”
