BMO Lanes: "The Last Hurrah" Edition

Congratulations on the Fantastic turn out at your Lanes event!

 

With your leadership and support, over 1110 bowlers came out across the division in 15 locations (that’s 150+ more than 2018!) As One Bank, you collected 75 lane sponsorships valued at $18,750 and 6 Lyrics sponsorships valued at $25500 with a Record breaking tally of $44,250!  To date, we have fundraised over $125,000 as a division! That’s an outstanding 42% achievement of our aspirational goal of $300,000 since we launched our campaign in early February. These are results you should be very proud of, so on behalf of the organizing committee and the Division, we thank you!

.....................................................................................................................................

Lanes is now closed!!

Show up in your most epic ANIMATED CHARACTER costume and lace up those bowling shoes! Bowling alleys across the province are going to be lit up on March 8th as we sing and bowl the night away. Join the fun so we can raise more funds!

A Note on picking your location

***Please Note ***

Tickets are first come first serve. Ensure you purchase your tickets at your Preferred Bowling location, your purchase is not restricted by your branch/ market location. For example, those working in the Vancouver market but wishes to bowl at another location (i.e. Richmond) will need to book their lanes in Richmond. If you purchase your ticket at the wrong location, it will result in you bowling at that location. Last minute changes are not guaranteed and based only on location availability.

How much are tickets to the Lanes event in my market?

Cost: $25/person

Bonus: The events are open to friends & family at $25/person - and their ticket price counts towards your fundraising target too!

Note: We strongly encourage attendees who would like to attend the event but not bowl to purchase the “non-bowler” tickets, as this would help us save on costs and to give more back to the community.  Non-bowler tickets sold would also count towards your fundraising target.

 

What if I’m not a bowler but want to participate?

We welcome non bowlers to join us at this extraordinary event. We strongly encourage attendees who would like to attend the event but not bowl to purchase “non-bowler” tickets”. 100% of these proceeds will go toward your fundraising target. This would help us save expenses, and more funds will be going directly to BC Kids in our community.

Are friends and family invited to Lanes?

Yes! Friends and Family are most welcome as long as they purchase their ticket in advance. Please ask them to come dressed up to have an awesome night!

What does my Lanes ticket include?

All events will include two hours of bowling with shoe rental.

Can I expense my ticket?

No. Your ticket purchase is a personal expense.

How many bowlers per team?

Minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 bowlers per lane.

Exceptions would be:

Kelowna:   5 bowlers maximum per lane

Penticton:  8 bowlers maximum per lane

Surrey:      8 bowlers maximum per lane

Victoria:     8 bowlers maximum per lane

How do I register my bowling team?

You can set up your team when you purchase your ticket. Just follow the instructions to create your team, then let people know your team name so they can join. Missed the opportunity to create your team at the time of purchase? No problem - just email your Bowling Ambassador with the names. Don't have enough people to make up a team? No problem - your Ambassador will pair you with some other super awesome BMO employees and you can make some new friends! ​

 

What do you mean by "The Last Hurrah" themed bowling?

This is "The Last Hurrah" Edition of Lanes & Lyrics, so expect to hear some epic songs from themes of the last few years during the event: Movies & Shows, Toons with Tunes and Music Legends! All bowlers must dress up as their "throwback" themed character…there will be prizes for the best costume!!

On Lanes night, where do I meet my Ambassador?

Your Bowling Ambassador or one of their volunteers will be near the entrance to check everyone in and let you know which lane you'll be using for the night. Keep an eye out for the L&L signs!

When do ticket sales end?

Ticket sales for the Lanes event will end on Friday, March 1st.  Tickets are limited, so make sure you purchase yours early!
