Vampires, princesses and superheroes take to the bowling lanes Saturday (Oct. 22) in support of Kids Help Phone.

People in more than 50 communities across B.C. will be in Halloween costumes to participate in the 20th annual BMO Boolathon.

The Nanaimo fundraiser takes place at Splitsville Entertainment, 171 Calder Rd. from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Kids Help Phone is a national organization that relies almost exclusively on the financial support of corporations, foundations and individuals to ensure every child reaching out for help receives the support they seek.
