Bowling for Emerald City

Friends of We Care “Off to See the Wizard” Bowling Challenge raises $18K for Easter Seals

  • Nov. 2, 2011 6:00 p.m.

Twenty-five teams from the food service and hospitality industry raised $18,359 at the recent Friends of We Care “Off to See the Wizard” Bowling Challenge at Xcalibur Bowling Centre.

The funds raised at the Wizard of Oz-themed event will help send children with disabilities to Easter Seals Camps next summer.

Friends of We Care is a network of 82 member sponsor organizations from the food service and hospitality industry united by a common desire help children with disabilities. Manufacturers, distributors, operators, brokers, management and marketing companies lend their hands and their hearts to help send Canadian children with disabilities to specialized Easter Seals Camps.

Last summer, more than 850 children with disabilities spent a week at one of the three Easter Seal Camps in B.C. – in Squamish, Shawnigan and Winfield.

In B.C., Easter Seals Camps are owned and operated by the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities.
