BBBS announces Bowl for Kids’ Sake Oct. 26

Published 11:20pm Sunday, September 8, 2013

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is the signature fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations across the country.

Locally it is the most successful and cost-effective event benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters, providing crucial funding to support their mentoring services. This event assures that more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can begin, and improved outlooks on life can be started.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake will be held on Oct. 26, noon to 2 p.m., at Autumn Lanes in Forest City, N.C. The day of the event is a celebration, with each team bowling two games, enjoying pizza, winning door prizes and celebrating community support for BBBS.

Funds for the event are raised primarily through sponsorships – a perfect way for area businesses, clubs, churches and individuals to have a positive impact on our community. Groups of community members form teams and solicit pledges to donate to BBBS.

With sponsorships to underwrite associated costs, the pledges raised by bowlers go directly to support Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs. Such success allows Big Brothers Big Sisters to match and support many more young people with caring adult mentors.

Big Brothers Big Sisters works to help children facing adversity achieve positive benefits. Mentors help broaden children’s perspectives and help them learn how to make good choices.

With the challenges that families currently face, it’s more important than ever to support efforts to help our youth grow into responsible adults. Big Brothers Big Sisters asks area citizens to please join in making this happen…by participating in a fundraiser, sponsoring an event, making a donation or volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters. Together, we can start more children on the path to fulfilling their potential – and change the trajectory of their lives.
