Lawn Summer Nights, a fun, social lawn bowling tourney and fundraiser in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, celebrated its last game of the season.
Lawn Summer Nights hosts games across Canada with the mission to raise money and awareness of cystic fibrosis, a disease that is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. It affects mainly the lungs and digestive system causing respiratory and nutrition absorption issues. The annual Lawn Summer Nights event has raised over 1 million dollars to date.
Lawn Summer Nights was inspired by Eva Markvoort, a friend of one of the founders in New Westminster, British Columbia. She was able to attend one event before she passed away on March 27, 2010 just before her 26th birthday. The event honours not only Eva but all those suffering from the disease.
