Ponoka’s Big Brothers Big Sisters’ (BBBS) largest fundraising event is coming up.
The organization’s Bowl for Kids Sake fundraiser will once again be held at Ponoka’s Leisure Lanes Bowling Centre and it’s expected to be a big one. The fundraising goal is set at $20,000 with all the money going to local programming.
There is still room for more teams.
How you can help:
• Form teams of up to six people with family, friends or employees. For teams, there is an opportunity to create their own fundraising page to send people to or they can collect pledges from friends and family in person.
• Register your team and collect pledges to raise the team entry fee of $400. With most teams looking at pledges or an online fundraising page there is a chance to raise more than the $400.
• Dress up in costume and participate in this year’s 1950s theme.
• Become a corporate or personal sponsor.
This year’s fundraiser theme is titled The Fabulous 50s and teams will have a chance at prizes for being the best dressed, plus there are door prizes for participants.
There are currently 28 teams signed up, which means there’s still room for another 20 teams, explained Morgen Chernick, program director.
“You can’t go wrong by creating a team. You’re supporting a great organization,” stated Chernick.
