Many shades of pink help local cancer patients

Sixteen triples teams from the club came dressed in pink to play for the Marnie Rose Trophy and to raise money for cancer patient care.

Shades of Pink were all over the ground at the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club on Wednesday

The Parksville Lawn Bowling Club held its annual Shades of Pink Tournament last week and various shades of pink were seen on every bowler in sight.

Sixteen triples teams from the club came dressed in pink to play for the Marnie Rose Trophy but more importantly, to raise money for local cancer patient care.

The event, in it’s eighth year, was set up in a six-pack format with seven, six-end games played throughout the day. There was also lunch and more fundraising activities in between.

Winners on the red side were Lynn Britz (skip), Hilary Lansdowne (third) and Carol Matthews (lead).

Winners from the white side of the bracket were Bev Beaith (skip), Brenda Gorman (third) and Gladys Kinsman/Kathleen Motley (lead).

The club raised $3,092 on the day.

“The support of the community, through donations from businesses, club members, local media and even teams who visited from other clubs to support this endeavour made this event such a great success,” said club spokesperson Carol Bucyk.

“We can’t wait to see what we can do for next year.”
