Lawn Days Of Summer
Thousands of dollars were raised at the annual Lawn Days of Summer held at the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club in August.
“We would like to acknowledge the event organizers for reducing waste at this event. All cans and bottles were recycled and any food-related waste was composted, so the tournament generated a very minor amount of non-recyclable garbage," said Samara Sonmor, executive director of the Food Action Society. "Food Action would like to thank everyone involved for supporting our gardening and cooking programs with this generous donation. Thank you for caring about improving food security in our community.”
Now in its third year, the event has gained traction for being a laid-back way to meet other young professionals, while raising money for a worthwhile charity in our community. It also gives people the chance to try the sport of lawn bowling, with generous support from the volunteers at the Lawn Bowling Club.
“As the organizing committee, JCI Vernon is very happy with the turn out for this event and are already looking forward to the summer of 2019 and an even bigger success," said Ute Cummings, event co-chair. “We also couldn't have done it without the support of our local business sponsors."
BDO Canada LLP, an international accountancy network, has been the event’s presenting Sponsor since the beginning.
The networking lawn bowling event put on by BDO, raised $3583.90 for the Food Action Society of The North Okanagan.
