Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke will be holding their annual Roll for Kids’ Sake on Sunday, February 17, at two separate locations and times. In Shelby County, the party will take place at Rolling Hills Skate from 6-10pm. In Darke County, the party will be held at The Skate Place from 6:30-9pm. The parties are open to the public and benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County. The cost is $10 per person and includes admission, skate rental, door prizes, the chance to win raffle prizes, and other entertainment. With it being President’s Day weekend, this year’s theme is “American Pride”, and the first 50 people dressed in patriot attire will receive a gift.

All proceeds will benefit the agency’s Big Buddies after-school mentoring programs which are held at seven different school locations throughout the two-county area. Big Buddies is a nine-month commitment where high school students volunteer two times per month to mentor elementary students. During these meetings, high school students, under the supervision of Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, work with one or two children on different educational and recreational activities. This year’s curriculum is entitled “Mindfulness: Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies” and focuses on brain development, social & emotional growth, nutrition, and exercise.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit, United Way partner agency, and is supported through financial contributions and annual fundraisers. Their next major fundraiser, Bowl for Kids’ Sake, will be held on March 1 and 2 at both Bel-Mar Lanes in Sidney and Treaty Lanes in Greenville. If you would like to make a big difference in the life of a child, either through volunteering, financial contribution, or event sponsorship; please contact the agency at 937-492-7611, 937-547-9622, or go to for more information.
