It was all for a good cause, to do battle against cancer.
Fourteen teams, with four players on each team, competed in the fundraiser for cancer, specifically for the ‘Haying in the 30s’ organization, at Smoky Lanes Bowling in Girouxville during Jan. 22-23.
Diane Dentinger, the event organzier, is pleased that so many people came out for the event.
“There are so many people in our area taht have cancer, and we put on this tournament to help ‘Haying in the 30s’,” says Dentinger.
“That organization has helped a lot of people in this area.”
The ‘Pin Killers’ placed first. The team consisted of Richard Veraart, Micheline Veraart, Denis Dentinger and ‘Killer’ Girard.
The ‘Honey Bunny’ team placed second. Their team consisted of Claire Valiquette, Denise Valiquette, Colleen Cloutier and Wendy Brulotte.
Third place went to ‘Got the Splitz’, and their team consisted of Ryan Roy, Kelly Roy, Marcel Roy and Ben Starko.
The entry fee was $240 per team. Each team was guaranteed three games, and a banquet was also included as part of the fee.
Other fundraising activities included a draw for prizes, as well as ‘Pull the Pin’, which consisted of a large bowling pin with colour-coded pins and papers inside each one to indicate how much the person would pay.
The total amount of money raised was $1,315.
