The Bowling for Daleyn fundraiser is only one day away, and there are still a few tickets left.
The fundraiser, created by local mothers, Cassidy Hilliard and Rosi Martin, is in support of local teen Daleyn MacIsaac and her battle with a rare autoimmune disease, ANCA Vasculitis.
MacIsaac was diagnosed in late summer, and has been receiving dialysis treatments five days a week at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.
Hilliard and Martin have spent countless hours over the past four weeks organizing the event which is taking place this Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at Underground Bowl in Bradford.
Local businesses and organizations have come together to help support the cause by sponsoring lanes and donating raffle prizes and silent auction items.
In total there are 30 gift baskets and 15 gift cards up for grabs in the silent auction and raffle.
“We had so many sponsors we had to add two sponsors per lane,” Hilliard shared.
Hilliard says the response from the community has been overwhelming.
“I’m so proud of Bradford for this! It’s truly amazing and shows just how much our town still has that small town charm and supports our community.”
“I get teary-eyed every time I look at the pile (of donated prizes) and look at the name of the sponsors and people coming to bowl.”
As of Thursday evening there were four tickets remaining. Each ticket is $30 and includes three rounds of bowling, shoe rental, pizza, popcorn and children’s entertainment: air brush tattoos, balloon twisting, a bubble show, and unicorn and My Little Pony mascots.
