It was a full house Sunday afternoon, at Grand Station Entertainment, in College Station.
Bowlers were there to support long-time bowling pro-shop owner, Mel Woods.
Woods was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last month.
Over 200 people bowled in Sunday's benefit tournament.
"Mel is such a kind man. He has probably at one time or another dealt with every individual person in this place, either helped their son learn how to bowl, has helped them learn how to bowl," said Mike Logan, owner of Grand Station Entertainment.
Woods has worked in local bowling alleys since the 1980s. He is being treated at Scott & White Hospital in Temple.
