If you’re a Benefits of Bocce veteran, you don’t need us to sell you on what a fun day it is. If you’ve never attended, well, where else can you soak up the hot summer sun, crank up some sweet tunes, crack open an icy cold beverage and unleash your competitive side, all while supporting a wonderful cause?
Teams of four will lay it all on the line in pursuit of the hotly contested Benefits of Bocce championship trophy, won last year by The Fortello Bros. In between games, enjoy a scrumptious Italian lunch, a
ticketed bar, a selection of great silent auction and raffle prizes, 50/50 draw, great music and great people. It all makes for the perfect summer day!
Benefits of Bocce is hosted by the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, a Burnaby-based organization that empowers individuals with Down syndrome to reach their full potential as contributing members of the community. All funds raised through the event are used to fund critical research and effective educational programming for people of all ages with Down syndrome.
