Raise a team and come out to Bowl for Kids

Every January and February, the Variety Club of BC has their annual fund raising campaign which culminates with the Variety Club Show of Hearts Telethon on BC TV.

The Variety Club can be found wherever there are children in need.  Fundraising capital projects for hospitals and development centers, supporting essential services such as medical treatments, subsidizing the purchase of wheelchairs, Sunshine Coaches, specialized equipment and tools or independent living.  Variety has been making a tangible difference in the lives of needy children for more than 39 years, providing them with the means and the hope to flourish.

For the past two years the Bowling Proprietors Association has been a partner in this effort through raising funds through our BC Bowl for Kids, and to date well over $100,000 has been raised and donated from Cranbrook, and we have received financial support back into our community from Variety.  Locally Juniper Lanes and the Ladies Auxiliary to the Fraternal Order of Eagles #3032 have joined forces to host a fun filled event on February 3, 2013 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. There will be 2 hours of lazer bowl followed by pizza (donated by Panago) and soft drink (donated by Selkirk) and of course Prizes.

This year we have opened it up to everyone. Put a team together of family and friends, young and old, or just want to individually join in, just drop by Juniper Lanes and pick up a pledge form. Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $30 in pledges, and there will be a prize for the highest pledge earner as well as many other prizes for young and old.

Come out and help us raise funds for this worthwhile cause, or if you would like to make a donation you can stop by Juniper Lanes and they will be happy to accept them on behalf of the KIDS.
