Bowling for Peace

Second Annual FUNdraising Games

Sunday, April 23
3-5pm (then stick around for pizza)

We hope you can join us for our second annual bowling fundraiser. This family-friendly event is a great way to support the Centre and have fun doing it! Last year’s event was a blast, even for those of us who hadn’t bowled in many years—or had never bowled at all!

This year we’re going 50s “retro” at Mountain View Bowl. We’re starting at 3, so please come at 2:45 to leave plenty of time to take care of shoe rentals and such. A couple hours of bowling works up an appetite, so after we finish bowling at 5, we’re gathering in the retro lounge for a couple slices of pizza and to hear which team won—we’ll also announce the winners of this year’s 50/50 raffle. (Gluten-free pizza is available—just let us know that’s what you’d prefer—and some veggies and a non-alcoholic beverage are provided, too.)

Or, if you can’t attend yourself but would still like to help out, you can sponsor someone below.

This is a great way to support our Centre and have fun doing it! Sign-up sheets and donation/pledge sheets are available at the Centre and will soon be available online. You and four other people can form a team of five, or just sign up below and we’ll put the teams together for you.

Sign-up below before April 14 so we can make the final arrangements with Mountain View Bowl.

50/50 raffle

We’ll be making the draw for the winning ticket of our 50/50 raffle in the lounge after the bowling. Supporters are selling tickets now and they are also available at the Centre. If all the tickets are sold the total cash value could be $4000 – with half for the Centre and half for the lucky winner. Contact Jean, our Administrative director, if you would like to purchase or help sell raffle tickets or if you have any other questions: or call 403 454 7595.

Looking forward to seeing you April 23rd! Retro outfits optional (but encouraged).
