(Leitchfield, KY) – It’s time for the annual “Bowl For Kids Sake” fundraising event for Grayson County.
Teams are forming now and the fundraising efforts are underway, according to Kevin Clark with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
The money raised during the two day event helps fund the local chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters. In fact, the event typically raises about 25% of the chapter’s annual budget.
It takes approximately $1,200 to make a Big/Little match and process all of the necessary paperwork involved.
The “Bowl For Kids Sake” event will take place at Rainbow Lanes in the Southgate Mall in Leitchfield on Saturday, Feb. 16th and Sunday, Feb. 17th. There are eight different times available for teams to bowl.
Clark said this year’s event is themed Rock-Roll-Raise and teams are encouraged to dress as their favorite rock stars.
A fundraising minimum of $80 per bowler includes two free games, free shoe rental, free pizza and soft drink, free commemorative t-shirt, free door prizes and giveaways.
You are ask to reserve your lanes and times for you team by calling Kevin Clark at (270)259-0492 or Jill Grant at (270)769-5225. You can also email Clark at email@example.com.
The local BBBS chapter is also looking for adults to volunteer as “Bigs.” Clark said it only takes 2 – 3 hours each month to be a “Big” and makes a profound difference in a child’s life.
Grayson County currently has approximately 10 matches and 70% of the waiting list is boys.
