Are you ready to get rolling for a great cause?
Discover why some have described Benefits of Bocce as their favourite charitable event of the year! Soak up some sun, crank up the tunes, crack open a beverage and unleash your competitive side as you pursue the hotly contested Benefits of Bocce championship trophy.
In between games, enjoy a delicious lunch, a ticketed bar, a selection of great silent auction and raffle prizes, a 50/50 draw, great music and great people. It all makes for the perfect summer day!
Benefits of Bocce is hosted by the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, a Burnaby-based organization that empowers individuals with Down syndrome to reach their full potential as contributing members of the community. All funds raised through the event are used to fund critical research and effective educational programming for people of all ages with Down syndrome.
Bocce teams consist of 4 players. Register a full team, or register as an individual and we will place you on a squad. Spectators can purchase lunch tickets for $25 through the registration form.
Pit Sponsorship ($500): Pit sponsors will have logo signage at each end of one pit at the event, and will have that pit named after them on all event schedules; medium colour logo on the event website and the DSRF.org website; medium colour logo on Benefits of Bocce posters and flyers; recognition on DSRF Twitter and Facebook accounts
What to Bring
Benefits of Bocce will happen rain or shine, and in past years we've experienced both! As we all know, weather can be unpredictable. Layer your clothing, as we are playing all day and the temperature will fluctuate. Please plan ahead to be comfortable and relaxed. We recommend bringing a folding chair, umbrella, blanket, water, sunscreen, and a hat.
See you in the pits!
