The response was overwhelming, with the initially planned one-day event expanded to three days and an increase in teams to eighty-seven from last year’s thirty-six. The community was clearly engaged, with team involvement and donations of posters, media support, draw and silent auction items. “Fun” would be an understatement for the energetic vibe to be found at Heritage Lanes around noon on Saturday. The place was glowing with a sea of pink, lights from the cosmic bowling, music and happy chatter.
The first two shifts of Saturday brought in $4,500 and $4,864 putting them just under last year’s total, with lots more games to come.
Says Kelly, “Next year’s date has already been set.” Monday it’s back to school at Trent University where she is enrolled in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She definitely deserves for the energy and success of the weekend to help carry her through completion of that mid-term exam that awaits Monday.
Great job Kelly, John, Heritage Lanes and all the participants, organizers, and supporters!
