Thank you to everyone who came out last night to volunteer, bowl and bid! Despite all the obstacles of Covid 19 restrictions we still raised $3,974.75! This money will be going back to our community as we make donations to organizations that support our youth, animals in need and those less fortunate.
There are so many we need to thank who come together to make this event a success. A special shout out to Nicole and Tom for their suggestions, time and continued support. Thanks to Steve, Courtnee, Jennifer and Jason for volunteering your time to help this event run so smoothly. Thank you Tom, Aly and Ragan for the bake table goodies.

We are so glad everyone who came out enjoyed their time and celebrated Olivia’s 25th birthday doing all the things she loved most. We bowled, we shopped, we ate and we laughed our way through a fantastic evening of fun-filled fundraising to continue our mission of helping Olivia do “great things!”
Stay tuned for an online auction we will be holding in late November for those who were unable to attend this event but still want to support Olivia’s Trust 😊 (details to follow)
Dust off your shoes and shine your balls folks! For the first time since 2019 we are holding our “Annual” Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust Bowling Tournament and Silent Auction 🎳 With the gradual lifting of many Covid restrictions, we can finally hold our major fundraiser and have a ball doing it 😊 see below for details:
Date: October 23, 2021
Time: 8 pm – close
Location: Woodside Bowlarama Cost: $25 per person to bowl (includes shoe rental)
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Olivia’s 25th birthday than bowling and raising money to help her continue to do “great things!” This is such a fun night for everyone from volunteers to participants while we bowl, bid, shop, laugh and eat our way to an amazing night. Remember to bring some cash for the 50/50, bake table, assorted raffles and of course Olivia’s Signature Tree items.
We will have 10 lanes initially so space is limited (more lanes will be available after 9 pm if you decide you want to bowl). If you want to reserve a lane, or donate a silent auction item please reach out to Dale on the Facebook page (an event will be created) or by email: email@example.com
Bring your wallets and generous spirit while we celebrate Olivia, enjoy the sport she loved and raise some money 💰. (Cash and e-transfer only)
Here is the glass that started it all… Jym Line Glassware Ltd. created this glass as a fundraiser to help out in their community during this tumultuous time. Each glass is $10 (taxes include) of which $5 is being donated to local area organizations in East Hants where Jym Line is located.
The glass proved to be so popular, the first run SOLD OUT in a few hours on April 15 and Tom Adams, President is Jym Line was able to donate $535.00 to the Caring and Sharing Angel Tree Food Bank on April 16! Now that’s how it’s done! Way to go Tom 👊🏼 Tom has committed to printing more glasses and is currently working on reserving orders for the next run due by April 23.
Olivia’s Trust works closely with Jym Line as they are an ardent supporter of The Trust in all ways. The Trust has decided to match Jym Line’s donations to organizations in HRM, with a focus on Dartmouth as that is Olivia’s community. Our first donation of $535.00 will be to the St. Thomas More Food Bank in East Dartmouth. Our second donation is earmarked for P.A.C.T. (Parents and Children Together) in Cole Harbour.
If you would like to help these efforts please consider buying a glass (go to the Jym Line Glassware Facebook page for details on how to purchase a glass for yourself or someone else). You can also make donations directly to the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust with directions that your donation be reserved for COVID 19 relief and we will ensure that is where it goes.
