Bowling Thunder raises $10K

Bowlers and businesses came out in strong support of Chatham-Kent Victim Services recently, raising more than $10,000 in the Bowling Thunder event.

Chatham-Kent Victim Services bowled a perfect game with their inaugural Bowling Thunder fundraiser on Feb. 5, as the event raised in excess of $10,000.

Businesses, organizations, and community members came out in droves for an afternoon of bowling at Chatham Bowlerama.

Organizers said the fundraising far exceeded expectations.

“We are very grateful to people in Chatham-Kent who donated, sponsored, and attended our first-ever Bowling Thunder fundraiser,” Jason Brown, volunteer and community engagement co-ordinator with Victim Services, said in a media release. “The generosity of people in our community was fully displayed on Sunday afternoon. The funds raised will help us continue offering dedicated, trauma-informed support to those impacted by crime and traumatic situations in every community across Chatham-Kent.”

Victim Services provides short-term emotional support, crisis intervention, practical assistance, and community referrals to those impacted by crime, tragedy, and traumatic situations. They also offer trauma-informed community education on a variety of topics. Every year, Chatham-Kent Victim Services supports over 1,400 people in our community with their healing and recovery.
