Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County hosted the 35th annual “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” on Sunday. All different types of superhero’s filled Turner’s Dual Lanes for the largest annual event of the year for the non profit. The event, is a fundraiser to help give back to youth in the community.
“We have over 140 sponsors throughout the community, the entire community comes together for this one event,” said Justin Aderson , the first vice president of the board of directors. Bowlers of all ages participated and each team had different costumes. Anyone who “spared” their time to bowl, pledged $30 to play. Everyone who helped raise the funds were all trying to reach a goal of $55,000 dollars. The nonprofit says that’s the highest goal they have ever set.
“If we can raise that much today it will be the biggest in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County history all of our super heroes are piling through the door and we’re very pumped and excited to beat our goal,” Anderson said.
Board members of the nonprofit say, everything they do is for the youth of Washington County.
“All of it is to provide just that little bit of guidance that every kid needs to be successful and to defend the potential that the kids have,” Jim Zuna said, the secretary of board of directors.
“Every child has potential, defend it, be a superhero,” Zuna said. All the proceeds from the event will go to helping Big Brothers Big Sisters keep activities throughout the year.
