Paula Anderson of New Westminster and Barb Gagnon of Princeton would like to invite you to join them in Princeton, on April 19, 2013 at the Copperhill Lanes and Lounge at 6 p.m., for a great fundraiser.

The ladies will host, “Bowling for Boobies,” an event to strike out cancer. A light supper will be provided for everyone attending and the lounge will be open. “This is the first time we have tried this fundraiser but with the wonderful support of Dan and Emily from Copperhill Lanes, we are really looking forward to an eventful evening,” said Gagnon.

Tickets are $25 per person. They are available for purchase at Copperhill Lanes or call Barb Gagnon at 250-295-4050.

This year the fundraiser and walk are even more significant as Gagnon  has conquered this disease for the third time. Less than a week after returning from the walk in Toronto last September, her Mum, Elsie Cooper, passed away at the age of 96.  “My Mum was also a breast cancer survivor having been diagnosed and treated at the age of 69 and we always said we are living proof this can be beaten,” Gagnon said.  “I have lost my two sisters to this disease and I don’t want to lose any more friends or family so that’s why I keep walking.”  Please join them in their 2013 campaign to strike it out.

On April 13, Gagnon and Anderson along with six other teammates from the lower mainland will attend the first ever “Bust A Move” event in Vancouver. This is a full day—eight hours of exercise, to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation, and to raise awareness and support for women and men about breast cancer.
