FYFB STRIKES OUT HUNGER

Food Bank raises more than $9,000

Toronto, ON (June 15, 2006) The Fort York Food Bank (FYFB), an independent agency of Daily Bread Food Bank, held its second annual, bowl-a-thon at Bowlerama and more than $9,000 was raised during the event. The much-needed donations will go towards the operations of the Food Bank.

"Everyone loves this event and we all have so much fun while raising money for this great cause," said event organizer, Devi Arasanayagam, an FYFB board member. "I can't thank everyone enough for working so hard to collect pledges."

Awards were handed out for top score, lowest score and Fred Flintstone Bowl, an award for the bowler who most embodied Fred's spirit.

Donations are still urgently needed and can be made in person at 797 Dundas Street West or online at www.fyfb.com (follow the links to CanadaHelps.com).
