Bowl for kids coming up soon

More teams needed

Time is running out to make a strike for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rimbey.

The organization’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake event will be held March 7th at Striker’s Alley in Rimbey.

Any family, group of friends, business, club, or individual who would like to help make sure these supportive friendships continue can call Program Director Annette Peck at 403-843-1066 to register a team and choose your hour of bowling. Bowlers will enjoy hourly draws, free delicious foods donated by local establishments and the fun of bingo bowling which, happily combines luck as well as skill. Volunteers, lane sponsors and donations would also be greatly appreciated. Team and individual prizes will be awarded and you are encouraged to dress according to the Harry Potter theme.

The Bowl for Kids Sake fundraiser is open to anyone who values this program in our community and wants to see it continue. The organization focuses on giving children a helping hand through the creation and support of one-on-one mentorships both in and out of school.

The businesses and people of Rimbey have been generous and supportive over the past nine years resulting a strong and meaningful program.

Now that times are tougher economically, help is needed more than ever to maintain current mentorships and to create new ones to support the many local kids still waiting for their own special mentor.

The biggest gift of all is time, just one hour a week during the school year to have fun with a little person, listen to them, bake or play games.

If that isn’t possible, please support this excellent program any way you can. Wit more than 100 years of research, studies confirm that this type of mentorship changes the trajectory of young lives for the better.

Come and enjoy yourself, Saturday, March 7 and strike up some fun for a very worthy cause.
