(News from the Billiard Education Foundation October 1, 2015 – Denver, CO.) “In 2015, the reputable cue builder, J. Pechauer Custom Cues proudly sponsors 17 junior players with over $1,500 each in playing equipment and their elite list of sponsored junior players continues to grow each year. On top of that, they donated another 15 cues for fundraiser events.
“They have always believed in the importance of building the next generation of the sport and consistently jump at the opportunity to support the juniors in every way possible. “We believe in supporting the youth to help grow the future of the sport and industry. It’s part of our business model,” said Joe Pechauer, owner of J. Pechauer Custom Cues.
“This year’s donation cue to the Billiard Education Foundation (BEF) was valued at $1,700 and sold over 350 tickets for the drawing raising $3,500 for the foundation and its programs. The elegant cue and case was drawn during the Junior Nationals banquet on August 4th. Tickets were sold at BEF events and online throughout the year to raise as much funds as possible. Each participant at Junior Nationals also received a ticket to the drawing. The lucky winner happened to be Virginia State 18 & Under Champ, Sierra Reams.
“In an effort to continue supporting the fundraising efforts of the foundation and its players, Pechauer is once again donating a cue to be drawing during the 2016 Junior Nationals banquet. This time around it will be the Professional Series P23-G with leather wrap and case valued at $1,100. Tickets for this unique cue are being sold now by the 16 players that will be representing the U.S. at the upcoming World Junior 9-Ball Championships in Shanghai, China.
