Bowling annual fundraiser was another huge success

 

The Markham Bowling alley was packed last month, with bowlers looking for fun, and happy to raise funds.

Blair Osborne and June Thomas, the event organizers, planned it as a precursor to the Ride to Conquer Cancer in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, taking place in June. Riders are encouraged to raise at least $2,500 and this event was to help them reach that goal.

“Candace Bryan (Markham Bowl owner) is a big part of our success. She has been hosting this event for us for the last few years and the participants have a blast bowling and are happy to be helping such a great cause,” said Osborne.

Osborne has raised more than $50,000 since getting involved about 10 years ago and Thomas has raised about $20,000 in her five years.
