The Penticton Vees announced Tuesday that Neil Jamieson and Underwriters Insurance will donate $92 to Cassidy Bowes’ GoFundMe campaign for each goal he scores in the 2018/19 season
Started by Bowes in August, his goal is to raise $9,292 for children’s cancer research until which time he will continue to grow his hair out.
When he reaches that amount he will cut his hair and donate it to help make wigs for cancer patients.
“I’m very thankful that Neil and Underwriters Insurance have decided to support me in my fundraising goal,” said Bowes in a news release and who, as of Tuesday, had received $2,490 from 23 donors.
“I can’t thank everyone enough for the support they’ve shown both through the GoFundMe and in person. I would love to see more local businesses follow in Underwriters footsteps so we can reach, and exceed the original goal.”
Bowes is scheduled to play his first game of the year Wednesday after recovering from off-season surgery.
Last year in his rookie season as a Vees, he had 16 goals.
