Lawn Days Of Summer

This project was put on hold in 2020 due to Covid 19. We look forward to a possible return for this project in 2021.


Date: September 10, 2019


It was another successful year for the Lawn Days of Summer Delivered by BDO.  $4,200 was raised for the Family Resource Centre through the lawn bowling tournament held in August. This fun networking opportunity saw teams of four compete at the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club, with the team from JCI Kelowna coming out on top.


"On behalf of our board, staff and clients we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the Jaycee's of Vernon and BDO for their generous support of the Family Resource Centre for this year’s Lawn Bowling event. It was a great event and the funds raisedwill have a direct impact to our clients and Agency. Thank you very much!” - Scott Manjak, Executive Director of the Family Resource Centre


Now in its fourth 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 ecstatic that we had a sold out event this year.” Said Dayna Watters, event co-chair.  “We also couldn't have done it without the support of our local business sponsors. Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor, BDO Canada, our BBQ and burger sponsors, A&W and Fix Auto - Vernon. To our lane sponsors; Natures Fare and Nixion Wenger. Also, thank you to all the business that kindly donated prizes; Kohler, Monahan Agency LTD., Cineplex, Home depot, Station BBQ Smokehouse, Wasabi, Pink Spotter Goat, Downtown Shoppers Drug Mart, Teaessentials, Superstore, London Drugs, Silver Star Liquor Store, Bean Scene, DavidsTea, and Healthy Spot. Lastly, thank you to all the teams that came out to have a fun night and support such an amazing organization like the Family Resource Centre.”


BDO Canada LLP, an international accountancy network, has been the event’s Presenting Sponsor since day one. They were pleased to see another strong turnout of energetic teams of young professionals partaking in this event.


“BDO Canada is committed to making a difference in our communities, and we are thankful for the opportunity. It is great to see such a big group of people come together year after year, committed to raising awareness and sharing stories that help empower families around the community.” – Markus Schrott, Partner at BDO Canada.
