A benefit for Frank Bellavia will take place beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday, July 31, at Rapids Bowling Center, 9524 Niagara Falls Blvd., Niagara Falls.
Frank, 44-year-old husband and father, has been a paramedic for 12 years. He has worked at Rural Metro (now AMR) ambulance service. He resides in Niagara Falls with his wife, Brianne Kennedy-Bellavia, and their two small children.
On June 25, Frank sustained a life-threatening injury. Currently, he is unable to speak or move his right arm. His road to recovery is going to be very long and medical bills are expected to be quite high. Frank’s wife and children are asking for your prayers for his recovery.
Frank’s friends, bowling buddies and coworkers have organized a fundraiser for him and his family. It’s sponsored by WNY No Tap. There will be a basket auction with doors opening at 3 p.m., and a bowling tournament starting at 5 p.m.
