Toronto, ON. The Fort York Food Bank (FYFB), an independent agency of Daily Bread Food Bank, held its third annual, bowl-a-thon at Newtonbrook Bowlerama and more than $11,000 was raised during the event. The much-needed donations will go towards the program delivery at the Food Bank.

"We all have so much fun at this great fundraising event," said event organizer, Marianne Gwon. "I can't thank everyone enough for working so hard to collect pledges. Our sponsors were fantastic again this year and we had draws for some great prizes."

Awards were handed out for top score (male and female), lowest score, youngest bowler and Fred Flintstone Bowl, an award for the bowler who most embodied Fred's spirit. A new award was added this year for the CLASP challenge. All told, the Osgoode Hall students who participated the challenge raised more than $2,000.

Sponsors of this year's bowl-a-thon included Cadillac Fairview, Dominion, Friends, Newtonbrook Bowlerama, Sherwood Copy, Sports Clubs of Canada, TD Financial Group, Tresses and Victoria Scholars Men's Choral Ensemble.

Donations are still urgently needed and can be made in person at 797 Dundas Street West or online at www.fyfb.com.
