Fundraising event to support local cancer centre

A group of students at the Odette School of Business is hoping to fight cancer with a most unusual weapon—bowling balls.

The Bowler and ’Stache event will raise funds for the Windsor Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation, from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, November 21, at Rose Bowl Lanes.

“We wanted to do something for men’s health, but there isn’t a local component to Movember,” explains team member Romi Saraswat. “By donating to the cancer centre, we can invest in bringing these health facilities right here to Windsor.”

Saraswat is organizing the event with teammates Ardit Ala, Corey Greene, Nicole Lamos and Justin Melo for their course in “Management and Organizational Life,” which requires students to engage in a charitable fundraising project.

Tickets are $12 per person, which includes two hours of bowling, shoe rental, pizza and pop. They are available for purchase November 20 and 21 from the team’s table in the CAW Student Centre from 10 a.m. to noon and 2:30 to 5 p.m.
