NEW YORK – On the night of August 10th, J.F. Lehman & Company and many of the firms’ friends and colleagues gathered at Bowlmor Lanes in New York City for the first annual “Bowling for the Brave” charity bowling tournament benefitting the Special Operations Warrior Fund (“SOWF”).

J.F. Lehman was supported in the fundraising effort through generous donations by numerous co-sponsors. Support at the Platinum sponsorship level was provided by Atlantic Inertial Systems, Atlantic Marine Shipyards, Defense Venture Group, OAO Technology Solutions, Inc., and Westchester Wealth Management Group.

Our colleagues and friends share our philosophy, and we appreciate their support of our fundraising effort. We look forward to the Second Annual ‘Bowling for the Brave’”.
