Bowl for Kids strikes great support

Rimbey Big Brothers Big Sisters holds fundraiser

There was lots of fun and excitement going on a Striker’s Alley in Rimbey last Saturday as the community reached out to support a worthy cause and have some fun in the process.

Rimbey Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids was a great success and bowlers appeared to be having a great time while helping financially support the local organization.

Haley Klugkist, program director for Rimbey Big Brothers Big Sisters said $9,300 had been raised by early Saturday afternoon, but the final figure had not yet been tallied.

She said the support had been very good.

“Everyone is so passionate and I love to see all the smiles.”

She said numbers were down slightly this year, but interest was still good and she was pleased to note that some new businesses had taken part.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is an organization which teams an adult mentor with a child who may be in need of a caring individual who can commit to spending time with them doing a variety of activities. In-school mentors spend an hour with their little brother or sister playing games or reading or simply chatting.
