Big Brothers Big Sisters to Host Annual Bowl For Kids' Sake Fundraiser

-

South Central Ohio Big Brothers Big Sisters is appealing to the community to support Bowl for Kids’ Sake, the mentoring organization’s annual fundraiser, which raises the money needed to successfully pair screened volunteer adult mentors with children who face adversity in professionally supported, long-term friendships. 

-

Bowl for Kids’ Sake participants solicit pledges from friends and family to raise funds to support the agency that serves children in Ross, Pickaway, Pike, Highland, & Fayette counties.

-

“Bowl for Kids’ Sake brings the whole community together in support of a positive future for our kids,” said Julie Violette, President and CEO of South Central Ohio Big Brothers Big Sisters. “No matter how someone chooses to be involved—bowler, team captain, or sponsor—each person has a hand in helping to start a child on the right path. Every dollar raised through Bowl for Kids’ Sake directly funds our mentoring programs in this community and helps to maintain our mentoring relationships, increasing children’s chances for success.”

-

The agency hosts Bowl for Kids’ Sake events in two communities throughout their service area during the month of April. Teams are generally made up of 4-5 people and each bowler is asked to raise a minimum of $60 in pledges. Everyone who bowls this year will receive a free t-shirt. The teams participate in the community of their choice and bowl two free games, receive free lunch & are entered to win a grand prize.

-

Events are scheduled to take place in Washington CH on Sunday, April 7th from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at LeElla Lanes, and on Sunday, April 14th from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Shawnee Lanes in Chillicothe.
