For The Love of Lawn Bowling...

People often ask me, when you say “lawn bowling” do you really mean “bocce ball”?

My response? Bocce is for fun. Lawn bowling is for the an entirely different class of human beings.

aka- my summer love.

For the second year in a row, myself along with 150+ of my closest friends come together dressed in our finest white linens, pearl necklaces and ridiculously large hats to lawn bowl. Truth be told, we don’t JUST do it for the sport, nor the amazing canapés,  nor the endless Tom Collins (although those are worth talking about). 

We do it for Eva. 

Eva Markvort was an amazing young woman, who touched the lives of not just myself, but thousands of others across our community, the country and the world. She was a friend, she was an icon, she was a beautiful spirit.

This spring, Eva succumbed to Cystic Fibrosis after a life long battle that inevitably stripped her of her ability to breath.  Thanks to Eva’s efforts to bring awareness to CF, her amazing blog, her inspiring documentary 65 red_roses and her epic personality, we have made a commitment to do our part to keep her legacy alive.

The Vancouver Leisure Society is here to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis and make CF stand for “Cure Found”

To donate please go to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation- Vancouver Chapter
