Fundraiser also celebrating 40 years of Big Brothers Big Sisters P.E.I.

More than 1,500 bowlers are managing to have some “fun in the sun” this weekend, despite the chilly weather.

They’re also hoping to raise $150,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters programs in P.E.I. during this weekend’s Bowl for Kids Sake tournament.

The tournament, which is being held in six locations across P.E.I. this weekend, has a feel-good “fun in the sun” theme.

Heather Doran, communications and development manager for Big Brothers Big Sisters P.E.I., said this year also marks the group’s 40th anniversary on P.E.I.

“It’s a good way to really celebrate our anniversary and how much hard work our volunteers have done,” she said. “This is like our thank you party for all their hard work.”

The tournament has about 250 teams taking part, including workplace teams as well as friends and family.

The Guardian has eight teams bowling in the fundraiser.

Today’s venues include the Tignish Parish Centre Bowling Lanes, Alberton Bowling Lanes, the North Rustico Lions Club Bowling Lanes, Summerside Wellness Centre and Murphy’s Recreation Centre.

The event will continue tomorrow at the Eastern Kings Bowling Lanes in Souris and Murphy’s Recreation Centre in Charlottetown.
