BBBS moves annual bowling fundraiser to November

Published 6:52pm Wednesday, October 3, 2012

Because of a conflict with the Have a Heart for Big Brothers Big Sisters fundraiser in February, BBBS officials recently announced the organization’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser will be held in November this year instead of in February as it has been in the past.
Bowl for Kids’ Sake will be held Nov. 10,  noon-2 p.m. at Autumn Lanes in Forest City, N.C. All bowlers receive a T-shirt, two free games, shoes,  pizza and drinks, as well as the opportunity to win prizes donated by local businesses and organizations.
All of the money raised goes toward matching and supporting BBBS’s mentoring program and its Big-Little relationships.
Teams of four-five bowlers are formed to participate on Nov. 10. Clubs, churches, businesses and school groups are encouraged to participate. Event details and team registration forms will soon be available online or by calling 828-859-9230.
Sponsorship information is currently available. Call 828-859-9230 for details.
