Bowling for ‘boobies’ packs Copperhill Lanes in Princeton

With support of Dan and Emily from Copperhill Lanes and Lounge, a fundraiser entitled “Bowling for Boobies” was initiated as a fundraiser.

The Breast Friends Team, Paula Anderson of New Westminster and Barb Gagnon of Princeton will be participating in their 12th annual Shoppers Drug Mart Weekend to End Women’s Cancer 60 K walk this year.

With support of Dan and Emily from Copperhill Lanes and Lounge, a fundraiser entitled “Bowling for Boobies” was initiated. Tickets were sold for $25 and the evening hosted a sold-out crowd.

“We could have sold out twice,” said a very excited Gagnon, “the people and the business have been just marvellous with their support.

Volunteers; Karen Norrington, Faye Niska, Ida Larsen, Maureen Dos Reis and Charlene Longdo along with Emily and Dan helped to make the evening a terrific success.

Outside of helping to “strike out cancer,” attendees enjoyed an evening filled with food, games and prizes.

The Breast Friends Team extends their appreciation to all who attended “Bowling for Boobies,” their volunteers and businesses for the “wonderful support.”

Anderson and Gagnon attended the “Bust A Move” event in Vancouver on April 13. The eight hour, all exercise day raised half a million dollars for the BC Cancer Foundation. Gagnon said it was a tough day, but was pleased to be a part of it.
