Georgian Lanes Entertainment fights back against cancer in the
Sixth Annual KNOCKDOWN CANCER Campaign!
Georgian Lanes Entertainment is teaming up with bowling centres across the country as the Canadian bowling community renews its efforts in the fight against cancer.
The 6th Annual KNOCKDOWN CANCER Campaign aims to bring awareness of cancer and cancer prevention to our communities and to encourage everyone to join the fight for life. In its first 5 years KNOCKDOWN CANCER raised over $500,000 for cancer research and cancer support, and we’re just getting started!
Bowling centres are an important part of every community across Canada, and are a hub of activity catering to all demographics. Roughly 900,000 Canadians go bowling every week, and nearly all of them have been touched by cancer to one extent or another.
Throughout the month of January, Georgian Lanes Entertainment will be raising funds by donating 50 cents from every shoe rental to 2 local causes in Parry Sound. In addition to this, we are hosting a fundraising tournament on Saturday January 28th, 2017 where participating bowlers raise pledges to play. We are also calling on local businesses to help increase funds raised by either sponsoring a lane for the month of January and/or donating a prize to be used in our raffle draws or silent auction.
Georgian Lanes Entertainment will be joined by participating Bowl Canada member bowling centres across the country. Funds raised through the Campaign will be donated to local cancer support groups or individuals in need of assistance. Here at Georgian Lanes Entertainment our efforts will be in support of;
2 local causes to be determined by January 1st, 2017
