It’s happening again, over two hundred 20 and 30-somethings will be joining together to help fight for a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Lawn Summer Nights is a lawn bowling fundraiser held in 16 cities across Canada, benefitting Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The popular event was inspired by Eva Markvoort who spent a lifetime battling Cystic Fibrosis. The event will continue to accomplish what Eva championed the most – enjoying life and finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Since the event began in 2009, Lawn Summer Nights has raised over $2.7 million for the cause and engaged thousands of young professionals in philanthropy and community leadership. Celebrating the 10th year this season, Lawn Summer Nights aims to raise $1 million across Canada this summer.
