The first office of the Ponoka Big Brothers/Big Sisters Society was opened in 1985 in the Ponoka Family and Community Support Services building at 5006-52nd Avenue.

Their major fundraiser for the past 24 years has been the Bowl For Kids funfest, which has been avidly supported by the community with team participation, pledges for the bowlers of all ages and countless donations of prizes and support.

The 2013 event is set for Friday, Feb. 22 at the Leisure Lanes Bowling Centre and everyone is invited to join in.
