On August 29, a special darts tournament was hosted to raise money for a local LGBTQ+ Initiative at Bowlero Pittsburgh, home of the Stonewall bowling league.

After a double elimination bracket which included games of 501 and Cricket, Greg and Jackie Cline prevailed over Steph Suskey and Jess Botti as tournament winners. The winners declined their $50 gift card prize value in favor of increasing the charity donation.

Each participant received one vote each to select the benefactor of the event from the choices below. The popular selection was the Big Siblings Program from Big Brother Big Sister of Greater Pittsburgh. A $200 donation is being made by Stonewall Bowling Pittsburgh as a result.

Event attendees indicated they were pleased with the event and hope that another steel tipped darts tournament can occur between the fall and spring bowling seasons.
