LSM Insurance Announces their 2nd Annual Bowling Night Benefiting Lupus Ontario

Earlier in 2014, LSM Insurance held a bowling night, raising $2,000 for Lupus Ontario. The event was so successful that they’re doing it again in 2015.

“LSM Insurance is extremely proud to once again working with Lupus Ontario and sponsoring our second Lupus / LSM Charity Bowling Event. They are terrific group of people who are working hard every day to try and improve the quality of life of people living with Lupus,” says Lorne Marr from LSM Insurance.

Lupus affects one in every thousand Canadians, which breaks down to nine women for every one man diagnosed. According to the Lupus Ontario website, Lupus is an auto-immune disease where a person’s own antibodies attack the person’s own body tissues. This causes symptoms of extreme fatigue, joint pain, muscle aches, anaemia, general malaise, and can result in the destruction of vital organs. It is a disease with many manifestations, and each person’s profile or list of symptoms is different. It is often referred to as “The Disease of a 1000 Faces.”

The 2014 event even drew the attention of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne after she received an invitation to attend. In a letter thanking LSM for the invitation, she wrote the following:

“I would like to take this opportunity to commend you and your colleagues on organizing this event, and for your selfless work in support of Ontarians living with Lupus and their families.”

This year’s event will take place on Friday, Feb. 13th at 6:30 p.m. inside World Bowl 9 East Wilmot Street (Leslie and Hwy 7) in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Lorne Marr HeadshotOn the line are bragging rights and lots of prizes, including the coveted LSM/Lupus Cup. There will also be individual prizes for the person with the top single-game score, the team with the best overall score, the team with the lowest score, and the person who manages to bowl a “turkey” (three strikes in a row).

A minimum donation of $35 per person is required to play, but of course, players can feel free to donate more, either online or in-person at the event through a personal cheque. All contributors will receive a charity receipt and LSM will match the first $500 raised.

If this sounds like fun, give LSM a call at 647-388-3617 or email and join a team. LSM is still looking for a few good men and women to fill nine teams of six, so get in touch soon and claim your spot.
