Big Brothers Big Sisters Shined in
Everything Purple Through
Bowl for Kids Sake 2019
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton wrapped up another annual Bowl for Kids Sake. The events were held on Saturday February 23th at Strike Point Bowling Centre in Lindsay and Saturday March 2rd at Fast Lane in Minden. Participants enjoyed dressing to
the theme of Everything Purple and the best dressed were awarded with a prize for their efforts.
The final amount raised was $28,000. The participants that raised the most pledges were awarded
prizes for their amazing efforts to raise the most money. The top individual was Daryl Moore from Minden Lions Club $1,000, second highest individual was James Mulhern from Lindsay & District Labour Council $790.00 and third highest was Robert Morrin from the Bahai Group $560.00. These three participants will win one of three prizes from Boston Pizza ($150 Gift Certificate), Lindsay Krown Rust Control Centre (car application) and Cardinal Coach Tours ($150 Gift Certificate). Other notable individuals were Tamara Grisdale ($535), Thomas deBoer ($520), Jamie Cowell ($380.75) and Meredith Svetec ($350) who will each receive a large pizza from Square Boys Pizza. The top team was the Lindsay & District Labour Council raising $1,365.00 who were awarded a table for 8 at the organizations upcoming BIG Dinner/Auction.
The funds raised through this event remain in our community to support one to one mentoring programs that assist children with reaching their full potential. The Social Return on Investment is $18 for every dollar raised through this event.
Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to thank all those that participated in this year’s event, whether it was the bowlers, lane sponsors, prize sponsors, volunteers or the owners of the bowling lanes. Together we are assisting children and youth with becoming contributing community members. Children and youth who have had the benefit of a friendship with a caring mentor are more likely to complete a post secondary education, find higher paying employment, donate back to the community at a higher rate and volunteer their time to their community; realizing the social return on investment into mentoring programs.
Those that would like to consider mentoring can contact the organization at 705-324-6800 or visit www.bigbrothersbigsisters.info .
See the fun from our 2019 Event!
Wing Fest 2019 was another BIG success. We would like to thank all those that attended, the participating restaurants, our sponsors and the volunteers for their continued support of this important fundraising event! Yes, we have a friendly competition among the restaurants, but the real winners are the children who can benefit from the mentoring programs that this event supports! Congratulations to the winner of the 65″ LG Smart TV from The Flat Panel Shoppe!
