Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ingersoll, Tillsonburg & Area scored a strike with their 34th Annual Bowl for Kids Sake event sponsored by Tim Hortons. The event was held in Tillsonburg April 27th and 28th at Sammy Krenshaw’s and in Ingersoll from May 3rd-5th at Ingersoll Lanes. Community members came together for a fun hour and a half of bowling celebrating a Rock ‘n Roll theme.
Each participant raised a minimum of $50.00, with all proceeds going towards the many mentoring programs offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ingersoll, Tillsonburg & Area which serve approximately 250 children and youth each year. All pledgers were treated to refreshments, Tim Bits, chances to win exciting prizes, and a day filled with bowling fun for participants of all ages.
Thanks to the generous participation of each community and the many sponsors, participants, donors and volunteers, this year’s Ingersoll and Tillsonburg Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake was able to raise an amazing combined total of $39,000! These proceeds will help the local Big Brothers Big Sisters organization continue to reach their goals of ensuring that each child has a mentor to help them reach their full potential, and changing the course of the community’s future. We look forward to seeing this event move into its 35th year next spring!
