Bowling fundraiser helps local organization

The event raised $125 for the Fraser Canyon Hospice Society

About 40 people came together on Sunday to participate in a fundraiser for the Fraser Canyon Hospice Society.

What a great event – there was great energy in the building for the full two-and-a-half hours.

People showed up from the following participating properties: The Yale Historic Site, Blue Moose Café, Hells Gate Airtram, Fraser River Raft Expeditions, Hope Visitor Centre & Museum Complex, and Drew Paton from Sunshine Lanes gave us a great deal on the building rental and Panago “cooked” a great deal on pizza.

After expenses were looked after we still managed to walk away with $125, which we will hand over to Ashleigh at the Fraser Canyon Hospice Society. This is our company’s charity of choice and is very dear to our hearts. The $125 goes a long way in that little society.

Anytime you can spread the word about hospice and how it affects you and your family is a good thing – Sunday was just a bonus.

And when small businesses can come together in the midst of a busy season and take a “pause for a cause,”  it just feels good.
