Bowlathon a winner!

Bowlathon a winner!

More than 90 people rolled against domestic violence in the inaugural Shine Bowlathon on the evening of Sunday 25th August at the Extreme Wairau bowling lanes. It was a fun evening with pizza, prizes and plenty of fun.

And together with the support of generous family, friends and colleagues, our bowlers collectively raised more than $11,000! This will help an incredible 47 families escape domestic violence. Thank you so much!
