The Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust is so very happy to be able to donate 8 backpacks filled to the brim with school supplies to the Woodlawn United Church.
Each student will receive a backpack, zippered binder, 2 packs of loose leaf, graph paper, report cover, 4 duo-tangs, single subject and 3-subject notebooks, page dividers, scientific calculator, 16 GB USB, pens, pencils, liquid paper and a pencil case along with a custom “Olivia’s Signature Tree” water bottle. We are also supplying bus tickets to help kids in need get back and forth to school.
Olivia would be thrilled to know she is helping kids go back to school in style so they can have a great new school year!
Thank you to every single person who supports us through our fundraising efforts so we can continue to do “great things!” in Olivia’s memory. Her kindness and compassion lives on in each of us 💜
Family, friends and volunteers of the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust invite you to our Annual Bowling Tournament 🎳 and Silent Auction Fundraiser! Let’s all come together to raise funds so we can continue to help Olivia do “Great Things!”
DATE: May 26, 2018
TIME: 7:00 pm
COST: $25.00 per person (includes shoe rental if needed). Book your lane early as we always sell out!
This fun-filled evening begins at 7 pm sharp with a 3-string bowling tournament consisting of 14 teams (5 bowlers per team). Winner takes home a ribbon 🏅 and bragging rights! (We ask the bowlers to arrive at 6:30 for lane assignments)
During the tournament we will also be holding our Silent Auction with tons of great items to bid on – bring your wallets (cash, e-transfer and cheques only).
All evening we will be selling Olivia’s Signature Tree items, holding a bake sale, 50/50 draw, weighted blanket raffle and selling spaces on our NEW Wine and Craft Beer Board!
We cannot think of a better way to honour and celebrate Olivia since her passion was bowling! All funds raised this evening will go back to our community in the form of post-secondary scholarships and donations to organizations that focus on our youth, animals in need and those less fortunate.

Weighted Blankets are used to help those who experience Anxiety, Stress, RLS and Insomnia. These blankets are also used by individuals who have Autism, PTSD, ADHD as well as other sensory disorders. Like a firm hug, the deep pressure acts to calm the person under it. (The added weight sends a message to the brain to release neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine to relax.)
