NBA Champions Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh hosted the All-Star Bowling Classic in Toronto in support of the Game Changer program – a sports program created by The Sandals Foundation and Wade’s World Foundation which aims to assist youth in underserved communities.

Proceeds from the celebrity bowling event, co-hosted by Wade and Bosh, benefitted the Game Changer initiative and also raised awareness for the cause through a red carpet, star-studded event during NBA All-Star Weekend. Hosted at Toronto’s The Ballroom, the fundraiser featured 9 sponsored bowling lanes and an afternoon of family fun complete with food, drink, games and entertainment.

Travel industry sponsors included Premium Sponsor: WestJet; Lane Sponsors: CAA Sports, TravelBrands, Air Canada Vacations, Travelweek and TripMate Inc.; as well as Event Sponsors: Barbados Tourism and Amadeus.
