The Bowl For Kids Sake bowling event that was held on Friday, March 6th & Saturday, March 8 at Bel-Mar Lanes in Sidney Treaty Lanes in Greenville with nearly 75 bowling teams consisting of 4 to 5 people in attendance.

The agency would like to thank all the businesses and individuals who supported their biggest fundraiser of the year. The money raised will go towards establishing one-to-one mentoring relationships between caring adults and children.

Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to send a big shout out to the community for their awesome support of our fund raising event!! To date our preliminary figures show we raised $37,000.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a nationally recognized event, and almost 700 agencies across the county participate and hold the event. Big Brothers Big Sisters evaluates its effectiveness and impact on a national and local level. Results show that children who are mentored are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and peers and are less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby and Darke County has drawn the winners of the Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2015 Prizes:

Grand Prize winner was Rhonda Setser of New Weston who bowled on the Wayne Healthcare team. Rob Douglas of Sidney who was a part of the Freshway Foods team won the prize for most money raised by a bowler, and the package winners were Kyle Kelly of Sidney, Thelma Schneifer of Sidney, Lauren Gilardi of Sidney, Michael Titus of Sidney, and Zoe Zimmerman of Sidney. The prize for any bowler who participated was won by Lindsey King of Sidney.

Great BIG thanks go to all of the companies that sponsored the event and helped make it a success. It is greatly appreciated.
