Don Bodger

It’s mind over matter for music trivia buffs

Dave and Don Bodger to host fundraiser for Alzheimer Society of B.C. at Fuller Lake Arena Sept. 21.

Keep on playing those Mind Games together.

The lyrics to John Lennon’s song provide the perfect summation for a music trivia fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of B.C., hosted by Don and Dave Bodger, taking place Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Fuller Lake Arena downstairs banquet room.

With incidences of Alzheimer disease on the rise and expected to continue accelerating in the next decade, the importance of exercising your brain as well as the limber parts of your body can’t be emphasized enough.

Mind Games will test the expertise of music trivia buffs to identify numerous songs and artists from the 1950s to the present. There’s still room for interested persons to take part.

Teams of eight are being formed to take part in the competition. Teams of fewer than eight can still register, as can individuals or smaller groups looking to join forces with others.

There will be many draw prizes in addition to rewards for members of the top teams.

It promises to be an exciting night and all proceeds from the $25 entry fee per person will go to the Alzheimer Society.

If you’d like more information and details on how to take part, send an email to sports@cowichannewsleader.com or donandtheresab@shaw.ca.
