B.O.W.S.E.R (Burlington Oldtimers Wives Supplying Emergency Relief) – Food on the Table for 25 Years!

Once again the BOWSER Babes will be giving their time and energy to raise food and cash to support the Burlington Food Bank.  They will be setting up tables in the lobbies of the arenas in which we are playing.  Your generous support is needed as well.  Any contribution of food items or cash will be greatly accepted and appreciated. 

The more we do for the food bank, the better we can help those in need in our community.

Burlington Food Bank

Twenty six years ago, six hockey wives formed BOWSER (Burlington Oldtimers’ Women Supplying Emergency Relief). The mandate was to help the less fortunate citizens of Burlington with a monthly collection of food and cash, all of which would be donated to the Burlington Food Bank.  Each month  during the hockey season the “BOWSER BABES” are at the arenas to collect non-perishable food items and household necessities. Some skaters prefer to donate cash in the bucket at the BOWSER table. All donations are distributed to Burlington residents.

Overall in 25 years BOWSER has collected 83,620 food items and $215,465 in cash

BOHC is recognized by the Burlington Food Bank as the major contributor each year. Our thanks go out to you - the BOHC members and to the hard-working team of ladies…

Michele Wood, Barb Charron, Louise Addison, Carolyn Park, Pat Broadbent and Michelle Koskinen
