Annette Peck, program co-ordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Rimbey said the event went well last year, raising over $14 000.00 for Rimbey youth programs.

“This allowed us to present Go Girls! Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds in all the schools and support over 30 mentorships in Rimbey and Bluffton. Our afterschool programs in partnership with Boys and Girls Clubs of Wolf Creek has had the participation of over 60 children and teens in its first weeks and plans for the future include expanded programming , more mentorships and Game On! Eat Smart, Play Smart, Live Smart for boys.”

Your help is needed to make our plans reality and this day a success, said Peck.

“Form teams of four to six people with family, friends or employees. Register your team and collect pledges on behalf of BBBS of Rimbey.”

Complimentary foods will be supplied throughout the day thanks to generous donations from local restaurants and caterers.

Peck said bowling times are filling up, so call and let her put your team in a time slot that works for you from 2 to 8 p.m.
