Bowling for Kids’ Sake: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Idaho

Kid bowlingKids need positive adult role models to keep them on a good path. That’s why Big Brothers Big Sisters sticks to their mission of pairing children (ages 6-18) of all  backgrounds with mentors. What’s great about Big Brothers Big Sisters is that they don’t  just look to help “troubled” children. Every child needs a role model, and they understand that kids flourish with mentors. By just being there for a kid, it makes a huge impact in their life. The philosophy of Big Brothers Big Sisters is incredibly simple, but it’s one that has made a gigantic difference for thousands of kids. Plus, the “Bigs” get just as much out of being a mentor as the “Littles” do.

In Southwest Idaho, we’re proud to support Big Brothers Big Sister of Southwest Idaho. In February, one of our employees and a Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteer, Megan, got involved with a fundraiser called “Bowling for Kids’ Sake.” She and her team, The Alley Cats (very clever, ladies) went seeking sponsors, and raised money for the cause. After they raised the cash, they got to bowl against a room full of other fundraising teams. Every team involved raised at least $500, so the bowling was a celebration of everyone’s accomplishment.
