Back in December, girls and their families from Burnaby Mountain District gathered together for a day that put the “fun” into fundraising: a district bowling fundraiser! The district rented Old Orchard Lanes on Kingsway and families signed up for a game of bowling. There was also pizza and snacks available for purchase, plus a silent auction with lots of cool stuff.
Everybody had a really great time. It was so fun to see so many people come together to engage in fun, physical activity for a great cause. What was the cause, you ask? The district was raising funds for its district camp in June. Specifically, we’re aiming to be able to have the funds for district to cover the cost of buses that will take girls all the way to camp from Stoney Creek School and back again — no driving out to Horseshoe Bay!
We’re thrilled to report that the fundraiser was a big success. In addition to all of the fun that was had, we are able to report the following stats:
- The 3-hour event included a total of 196 bowlers
- They consumed 30 large pizzas
- We made a net profit of approximately $700
Way to go, girls and families! Thank you to the leaders who helped to plan and run the event. And a HUGE thank you to the staff at Old Orchard who went above and beyond in helping us run a successful fundraiser. They were such a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend their bowling lanes as a great place to have some fun.
