Capital News story about free bowling event incorrect

Activity slated for Sunday, April 12, was for invitation-only, not a general public event.

A story in the April 8 edition of the Kelowna Capital News published some incorrect information about a bowling event planned for Sunday, April 12, at the Capri Valley Lanes.

A  notice about the event, free family bowling from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a complimentary pizza lunch, was intended to be by invitation-only, and not for the general public, organized by JDRF Okanagan.

The Capital News apologizes for misleading our readers with the incorrect information on the published story.

The bowling event is the kick-off to this year’s walk fundraiser campaign, which culminates with the 2015 TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes on Sunday, June 14, 9 a.m to 1 p.m., at Mission Creek Regional lPark. To register for this event, go to
