Bowling for Boobs a Success

[slideshow_deploy id=’61405′]

Breast Cancer-two words that have the power to terrify even the toughest of people, and a disease that can alter the path of a person’s life forever. Due to research and the support of breast cancer awareness groups like the Colusa County Breast Cancer Fund, there is hope. Not only is there hope but there is the support of a community.

On Saturday, July 19, dozens of good spirited bowlers came out to Riverside Lanes, in Colusa, showing their support for the fight against breast cancer.

Although gathered for a serious cause, it was a festive atmosphere at Riverside Lanes as the sea of pink garbed participants laughed and encouraged one another. Good natured ribbing could also be heard as they bowled, going for that prized strike.

This bowling fundraiser is hosted by Colusa County Breast Cancer Fund and Riverside Lanes; raising over $2,000 for local breast cancer patients.

“I was amazed with the support from the community this year,” said event organizer, Shannon Ibbotson, “it was very heartwarming.”

Ibbotson with the help of her mother Audrey Taylor organized the annual event.

“Shannon has done a great job this year,” said Colusa County Breast Cancer Fund Committee Member, Cindy Campbell, “She really outdid herself!”

Riverside Lanes provided the venue at no-cost for the event.

“We had several sponsors who donated over 30 raffle items and gave their support,” said Ibbotson, “I would like to thank them all.”

Winning first place with the highest score was team ‘Taking Care of Boobies’ with team mates Kyle Miller, Nona Troughton, Michael Troughton, and Karen Pendleton.

Winning the Booby Prize was Sara Cervantes.

The best team name went to “Bowling for Utters” with teammates Patti Turner, Hillary Pearson-Smith, Cindy Sites, and Mindy Parker.
