Chatham-Kent Victim Services raises over $12,000 at ‘Bowling Thunder’ fundraiser

Chatham-Kent Victim Services bowled another perfect game for the second year in a row with their Bowling Thunder fundraiser over the weekend. Businesses, organizations, and community members came out for a fun afternoon of bowling at Chatham Bowlerama.

Organizers say the event was a hit, with the community, raising over $12,000.

This year, Teksavvy partnered with Victim Services to sponsor the event with the Chatham-Kent Police Service partnering to provide lunch for attendees.

The funds raised will contribute to the Crisis Services, and Community Programming offered by Chatham-Kent Victim Services.

Chatham-Kent Victim Services provides short-term emotional support, crisis intervention, practical assistance, and community referrals to those impacted by crime, tragedy, and traumatic situations.

They also offer trauma-informed community education on a variety of topics.

Every year, Chatham-Kent Victim Services supports over 1,200 people in our community with their healing and recovery.

“Once again the CK community has shown their generosity and helped us beat last year’s fundraising total by over $2,000,” stated Jason Brown, Volunteer and Community Engagement Coordinator, in a media release.

“We are grateful for the strong support of Teksavvy in sponsoring this year’s fundraiser and the Chatham-Kent Police Service for helping us provide lunch to attendees. It is wonderful to have such tremendous community partners. The funds raised will help us continue offering dedicated, trauma- informed support to those impacted by crime and traumatic situations in every community across Chatham-Kent. I want to thank the staff and team at Chatham Bowlerama for their hospitality and support in helping us host the event.”
