Support Journalism Students with Third Annual Sugar Bowl Fundraiser

Sugar Bowl Tournament and Fundraiser
Registration is now open for the 3rd Annual Sugar Bowl Lawn Bowling Tournament and Fundraiser in support of the Amber Webb-Bowerman Memorial Foundation.

When: August 27th, 5pm
Where: The Calgary Lawn Bowling Club, 1238 - 16 Avenue SW
What: The Best Time of Your Life on a Bowling Green (and for a good cause!)

Tickets for Bowling, Cheering, Food and Drink
Tickets cost $70 per person or $280 for a team of four. If you register a full team, you'll get two “fan” tickets ($30 value) as well as team name buttons for your whole group. Fan tickets can also be purchased for $15 each and allow you to come out and cheer the teams on and have food and drink with all of the Sugar Bowlers (you just don’t get to play). All participants will receive a barbecue dinner and two drink tickets.

Raise That Publishing Community Spirit
This is also the prime opportunity for members of the publishing community to face off. Will the Alberta Views team steal the championship this year? Or will it be RedPoint? What about JuneWarren? Or will it be the Swerve team? Or maybe Avenue's Jenn Hamilton will be the dark horse on the winning team once again (pictured above with the Sugar Bowl trophy). Only way to find out is to register and come!

Both team and individual registrations can be found at and you can pay online through Paypal or by mailing a cheque.

Support Journalism Students with Auction Donations
Money raised at the Sugar Bowl will go toward creating an endowment for an ongoing journalism scholarship at Mount Royal University in Amber’s name.

The Amber Webb-Bowerman Memorial Foundation is looking for donations for our Sugar Bowl silent auction. If you have anything you’d like to donate, please contact

Deadline to purchase tickets is Thursday, August 25. See y'all there!
