Last year Sara Murphy organized a musician and artist bowling team called the Rock N’ Bowlers! This year Sara has organized two teams! he Rock N’ Bowlers will be one of many teams raising money and knocking down pins at the 2013 Bowl For Kids Sake benefiting the local chapter of Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Here is a short interview I did with Sara Murphy last year concerning her involvement with the organization and the reason why she organized a team.
Jason Setnyk: “How did you get involved with Big Brothers and Big Sisters?” Sara Murphy: “I have been involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall for sometime now on both a professional and personal level after my colleague Bill Makinson introduced me to this great non-profit. The staff are truly wonderful people who work so hard to see that our local kids get the mentoring relationship they deserve. There is no charity quite like BBBS. I have people close to me who used the mentoring programs as youth, so I have seen and heard all the positives having a ‘Big’ can do for a child. Jason Setnyk: “What made you decide to put together a bowling team consisting of musicians and artists?” Sara Murphy: “I was amazed at last year’s Bowl for Kids Sake how many local businesses put together teams for the event. The local arts scene, however, was not represented. I thought it would be great to have musicians participate in this year’s event, and make it an annual thing. So many local musicians donate their time to charity events by performing, but I thought this would be something completely different for us and a lot of fun, all while supporting a great charity!”.
