Qualicum Beach lawn bowl for charity

The Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club recently held the Sylvia Gibb Garden Bowl ladies pairs tournament and what a success it was.

The Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club recently held the Sylvia Gibb Garden Bowl ladies pairs tournament and what a success it was.

We made this into a charity event to honour Sylvia Gibb a long-time club member who passed away in 2013. We held a raffle and also set up a chocolate fountain which was a huge hit. Proceeds from these two events were donated to the Oceanside Haven House and as part of our commitment to the community, the club came through with a top-up donation. In total we raised $545.

On behalf of our club and Oceanside Haven House we wish to thank the local businesses that generously donated to the raffle: Chocolates Plus, Synergy Day Spa, Deez Restaurant & Bar, Shady Rest Waterfront Restaurant, Mulberry Bush Book Store, Qualicum Bakery, Bailey’s in the Village Restaurant, Fresh ‘N Fabulous Flowers and Gifts, Englishman Interiors, Outsider Adventures, Petal & Kettle Florist, Faye’s Gifts, Lefty’s Restaurant, Driving Miss Daisy, Dr. T. Kirk, Gary’s Bistro, Oceanside Pizza, The Source and What’s Cooking. In addition, David Childs and Charles Macintyre, members of our club, donated.

A very special thanks to two people: Vivien Sears of Re/Max Real Estate, our sponsor (she put on a great wine and cheese reception for the participants) and to Lynn Chwartacki the driving force for this event.

We could not have pulled this off without the support of our club members who prepared the greens, made the lunches, sold tickets, looked after the bar and kept score. So to all those who made it happen, thank-you.
