Pennsylvania bowling alley gets holiday surprise from Barstool Sports

WILKES-BARRE, Pennsylvania -- A bowling alley in Northeast Pennsylvania is one of many businesses nationwide receiving much-needed support from Barstool Sports.

Dave Portnoy, owner of the sports blog, surprised the owners of Chacko's Family Bowling Center on Christmas Eve.

Kara Hodorowski was wrapping presents when she answered a video call on her phone from Portnoy, according to WNEP.

That's when she learned the family-run business in Wilkes-Barre will get $15,000 per month until the pandemic is over.

"Thank you so much for this. This is giant. To be able to say something like this to my dad before Christmas is just really amazing," said Hodorowski.

Barstool Sports plans to distribute several million dollars to small businesses across the country to help keep employees on the payroll.
