Thank you BOHC for supporting BOWSER!

Last season, BOWSER managed to collect 3,513 food items and $25,214 in cash donations. This brings the lifetime totals to 99,244 items of food and $346,060 in cash donations. Shown here in the photo are Robin Bailey (Executive Director at the Burlington Food Bank) and the BOWSER Ladies - Erin Kofoed, Johanne Patterson, Christine Fera, and Tangy Rattray with Peter Jakob (President BOHC). BOWSER ladies look forward to working with our BOHC players this season, collecting food and cash donations on a monthly basis for the Burlington Food Bank. We look forward to seeing you at the rinks!

If you prefer not to bring cash to the arena - you can etransfer a donation directly to BOWSER at:


BOWSER gives their time and energy to raise food and cash to support the Burlington Food Bank.  They set up tables in the lobbies of the arenas in which we are playing and hope that you can bring a food item with you to your game. Any contribution of food items or cash are greatly accepted and appreciated.

HISTORY is made!

In the fall of 1992, six hockey wives formed BOWSER (Burlington Oldtimers’ Women Supplying Emergency Relief). Their mandate was to help the less fortunate residents 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 arenas collecting non-perishable food items and household necessities.


Shown here are Michele Wood, Louise Addison, Johanne Patterson, Robin Bailey (Burlington Food Bank), Barb Charron, Carolyn Park and Pat Broadbent presenting the Burlington Food Bank with a cheque which includes the BOWSER cash contribution for the 2018-19 season. Including the Christmas Dance donation, it brings the BOWSER season total to $19,310 and 3,553 food items. To date, through BOWSER, the BOHC (Burlington Oldtimers Hockey Club), members have contributed, 89,768 food and household items as well as $253,280 all donated to those in need in our Burlington community. BOHC is recognized as the major contributor to the Burlington Food Bank.

Our thanks go out to the BOHC members and the “BOWSER BABES”.
