Virtual bowling challenge to aid Big Brothers-Big Sisters

Even before Ontario’s new state of emergency and stay-home order was announced, this year’s 41st annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake event had moved online or to other home-based options.

But it’s still going to be fun, said Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Grey Bruce event promoter Cala Bryans.

Distroscale

The Bowling Alley on 10th Street West, just west of Owen Sound, had to close for 28 days as of April 1 by provincial shutdown order, which forced the move to alternatives.

So the fundraiser, which the organization depends on to help fund its programs, will be offered to participants as a video-bowling game available on its website from April 10 through April 30.

Or participants might want to challenge friends or co-workers to bowling on a Wii video game system if they have one, or just roll a ball at some water bottles, download a score card from the BB-BS website, and play a game. Scores can be emailed to cala.bryans@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca.

See the BB-BS website, where participants can set up an online account to receive donations, accept online donations, access the online bowling game and the link to a virtual closing ceremony, broadcast at noon on May 1.

There will be prizes for reaching a certain fundraising goal and for the top pledge-earner.
