Ever wanted to bowl all of Chateau Lanes’ 30 lanes in one afternoon?

Raise some money for CancerCare Manitoba and you’ll be able to.

The 10-pin alley, located at 1145 Nairn Ave., is hosting a Knockdown Cancer event on Jan. 25 at 2:30 p.m. As part of the event, participants will bowl one frame at each lane. As of Jan. 16, approximately 20 people were slated to take part, and organizers hope to boost that number to between 40 and 50 prior to the event.

Those interested in participating can grab a pledge form at the alley before collecting the minimum $50 in pledges required to participate. Last year’s event raised $8,200.

The bowler who raises the most pledge money will receive the option of two tickets to a Winnipeg Jets game or a $150 Visa card. The bowler who posts the high score for the day will receive a two-hour bowling party for six people, complete with popcorn and pop.

In addition to the event, the alley is donating 25 cents from every shoe rental during January to CancerCare Manitoba, and are selling pink items ranging from clothing (scarves, toques, hats) to toys like sock monkeys.

Knockdown Cancer is a national Bowl Canada campaign that has raised over $250,000 in its first two years of operation.

Chateau Lanes employee Sherry Hobson said it was important for the centre to get involved because of the disease’s prevalence.

"There’s pretty much nobody who hasn’t been touched by cancer," Hobson said.
