Bowl for Kids Sake Wrap Up

This year, our Bowl for Kids Sake teams were on a mission to raise money to help Island children reach their full potential!

On March 3rd & 4th we had so much fun celebrating the hard work of our teams at events in Charlottetown, North Rustico, Summerside, Souris, and Tignish.
