Lupine Art Studio teamed up for the second time with KidSport Comox Valley to host a summer fundraiser, Saturday at the Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club.
Money generated by the Charity Lawn Bowling Day helps families facing financial barriers that prevent children from playing sports.
“Everyone paid $30 to register,” said Jana Letain, president of KidSport Comox Valley. “Last year, this event raised around $2,500. This year, we sold out, so hopefully a little bit more.”
The festive event offered a prize for best dressed team.
“Every single dollar that we raise here stays in the Comox Valley, and it goes directly back to the kids, to help them pay for sports,” Letain said. “Last year, we paid $24,800 in registration fees to 110 kids in the Comox Valley. We’re on pace to do about the same this year.”
