Big Brothers/Sisters seeks bowling teams

February 8, 2010


Big Brothers Big Sisters is recruiting teams for its annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraising event.

Bowling teams, which usually consist of six people, collect donation pledges for Big Brothers Big Sisters and participate in a night of bowling, pizza and drinks at Royal Crest Lanes.

The money raised goes to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which matches volunteers with at-risk children in Douglas County.

T-shirts are given to individuals who meet the $125 fundraising goal. Those who exceed it are entered to win one of several grand prizes, which includes a three-month gym membership, pontoon boat rental, notebook computer and Nintendo Wii.

Contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at 843-7359 or to sign up for one of these bowling times: Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. or 9 p.m.; Feb. 27 at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. or 8 p.m.; or March 6 at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. or 8 p.m.

Hitme, I assume you are not talking about their Executive Director. Keith is an amazing human being and has done great things for BBBS, and all the Boy Scout troops in the district. He works very well with people and gives nearly every hour of his day to helping others. I'm guessing that you're talking about another person in their organization that you've encountered. Otherwise, you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

WOW! This article is about helping children in the community. These comments are way off base. If someone has a problem with someone that may or may not work there what does that have to do with a fundraiser for the kids? My daughter happens to be one of the kids that works very hard on this Bowling For KIDS SAKE pledges. Good grief! Its about the kids. It is really said when I take my daughter to get pledges in the community and she is turned away over and over again with sadness and discouragement in her eyes. Dont complain when the kids in the community dont get the support from adults in the community and they turn to negative activities. Heck your paying taxes for people locked up in jail. Pledge for these kids to have a good mentor in their lives to keep them away from taking tax payers money. Pay it forward. These kids now will be our politicians and teachers and adults in the community, as you are today. I hope the children today will remember the day when they knocked on someones door and were turned away. Remember it and when they become an adult and a child knocks on their door they wont turn them away. They will greet them with kindness and do the right thing and help for.... KIDS SAKE
