Flashback 1960s at the ‘Bowl for Kids’ Sake’ Event
Chilliwack, B.C. – Wearing tie dyed t-shirts, bell bottom jeans, peace symbols and headbands, Sutton – Showplace Realty (2015) participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids’ Sake on March 12th at the Chillibowl Lanes. The fun-loving bowlers raised more than $650 for the charity and helped to propel the Chilliwack Bowl for Kids’ Sake to the number one fundraising spot in the Fraser Valley with a grand total of $9,370. This Sutton team has participated many times and is proud to support the mentorship work of Big Brother Big Sisters and its volunteers.
“The theme this year was '1969 - Summer of Love' and most people dressed up and everyone was excited to take part,” says Amber Siemens, the Office Administrator. The evening featured pizza, a door prize, a 50/50 draw and two rounds of bowling.
Amber admits: “The majority of us bowled horribly; however, there were a few of us that managed the odd strike or spare. Kim Parley was able to get quite a few strikes fairly consistently. Crystal de Jager did quite well also with many spares and a of couple strikes under her belt.
“The best sport of the night had to be Jen O'Gorman. She pulled her back that morning, but still showed up to bowl and didn't do too badly for someone who couldn't bend! The evening was spent laughing at ourselves for a good cause. I'm very proud of the turnout and enthusiasm we had this year.”
