Bowling campaign provides hope for children

Variety – The Children’s Charity is hoping Nanaimo bowlers will toss a strike for the kids.

Variety’s B.C. Bowls For Kids, a two-month long fundraising campaign in partnership with Bowl B.C. and Youth Bowling Canada, takes place throughout December and January at bowling centres across the province, including Brechin Lanes and Splitsville Entertainment Centre in Nanaimo.

Leagues, teams, businesses and individuals  are encouraged to collect pledges and bowl for Variety.

This year marks the 27th anniversary of the campaign, which has raised $3 million for children who have special needs.

Anyone interested in putting a team together for the fundraiser can e-mail Carlene Field, events coordinator, at Variety B.C. at or call 1-604-320-0505.
