The new owners of Village Lanes in Leesburg, Va., Scott Carpenter and Charlie Beach, are in the process of renovating the center, and as part of that process, decided to bid adieu to 200 house balls that they’d inherited.

But rather than simply throwing them away, they found a way to use them to help out people in the community who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

They’ve donated the balls to the Ampersand Pantry Project, which provides meals, diapers and other items to families unable to afford such necessities. And they gave the operators of the charity an idea: conduct a decorating contest, and put the decorated bowling balls up for auction.

It’s expected that more than half of the donated balls will end up on the auction block as folks seek unique pieces of art for their homes or offices.
