We reached our target of $10,000 !!!!!!!!
It’s official the 2013 BIAPH – 8 th Annual Bowlathon – was a rip roaring success.
As in previous years the event was held at the Classic Bowl in Mississauga – thank you Jay and your terrific staff.
At about 6:15 PM we got the registration desk setup and the bowlers started arriving.
Good thing we had four tables setup for the silent auction because there were over 40 items available to the highest bidder. The items included everything from Maple Leaf tickets to passes for the Garden Show, from an Apple iPod to a Blu-Ray DVD player, from a Dewalt drill to a Coffee Maker. You could bid on services including help from a professional ‘organizer’ to a Chartered Accounting firm for your taxes.
At 7:00 the lanes were opened and yes, there was some mean bowling going on.
Balls were rolling, pins were flying, nachos were being devoured and chicken wings were gobbled up. A good time was being had by all.
By 9:00 PM the dust had settled the food was gone and the prizes were handed out. Team with the Biggest Heart was Charlie’s Angels.
Everyone deserved to win the ‘Biggest Heart’ and ‘Best Spirit’ trophies. There was a great demonstration of ‘heart’ and ‘spirit’ by everyone who turned out.
The visitors from BIST won the Championship Team award. Best bowler honours was very close.
To reach our goal we needed a lot of help.
Thank you to all who collected pledges and donated to our silent auction!

In 2012 BIAPH expanded the number of monthly support groups to four each month: in Burlington, Mississauga, Georgetown and Brampton. It was great to see how all of these groups got behind this event. We saw a record number of auction items and a record amount of pledges raised. The money raised from this event will help BIAPH sustain the existing support groups and will go a long way to help creating new groups and programs for all ABI survivors and caregivers of Peel and Halton.
