Eight Chilliwack businesses took in some five-pin fun while raising money for a good cause earlier this month.
The annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake, benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley, brought in a total of $7,000 at Chillibowl Lanes on Monday, March 2.
It was a sold-out event and the theme this year was 50 Years of Canucks where participants were encouraged to dress in costume.
The event featured wacky outfits and ‘crazybowl’ rules that had players lobbing bowling balls through teammates’ legs, while holding hands, with their eyes closed, and more.
“For myself, the highlight was the ‘crazybowl’ round because we had to work together,” said Amber Siemens of Sutton Group Showplace Realty, one of the eight local businesses that participated. “Some of us even got strikes doing those crazy stunts. It just made us all laugh so hard. It was a lot of fun.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley held its Abbotsford Bowl for Kids’ Sake event on March 9 at Galaxy Bowl.
For nearly 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has matched children and youth with caring adult mentors. The goal is to help young people overcome adversity to reach their full potential.
