The Thome Group has been organizing an annual charity bowling event since 2016 as part of fund-raising efforts for our adopted charity – the Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF). In addition to the nominal registration fee that staff contribute to participate in the event, the Thome Group donates $1 for every point scored during the event.
The charity bowl for 2019 was held on 12th September 2019 with over 80 Thome staff and 30 CCF beneficiaries and their families playing bowls using 20 lanes of the bowling alley.
This year saw the highest number of CCF beneficiaries participating as this event which has increased in popularity within the CCF community over the last four years. As a special twist for this year, all participants were encouraged to decorate their outfit with Superhero-related accessories to gain some extra points for their team.
Two games were played for each lane and a total of 16,685 points were scored. In recognition of their good scores, trophies were presented to the top 2 teams with the highest mean score as well as the top male and female adult and junior bowlers.
On behalf of the We Connect team, we would like to thank all staff who participated in the bowling event. It was heart-warming to see our colleagues engaging the young CCF beneficiaries and their families throughout the evening and making the event special for them.
