The Honourary Chair for the 2014 Tim Hortons Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake will be announced at a media launch taking place at 1p.m. on Monday, December 2, 2013 at Olympia Bowl in Cornwall. The bowling alley, located at 71 Ninth St. W. and Nativité Bowling at 301 McConnell, play host to the City Challenge portion of the non-profit organization’s annual big bowling fundraiser.
The 2014 Tim Hortons Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake fundraiser will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2014 in Cornwall and on Sunday, February 9, 2014 in Chesterville. The annual fundraiser is integral to the operation of the seven free mentoring programs provided by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District.
The event sees over 200 teams of local bowlers lacing up to help the non-profit agency raise close to 30% of their annual operating budget.
“We are already seeing new teams signing up for this year’s event and look forward to seeing even more new teams join us!” said Executive Director Amanda Brisson.
Brisson said the influx of new teams is an encouraging sign that, with the community’s help, BBBS will meet and possibly surpass the $63,000 raised last year.
BBBS mentorships instill trust and self-confidence in the youth enrolled and provides opportunities for them to learn leadership skills and try new things, all while having fun.
Local media representatives are invited to join Big Brothers Big Sisters on Mon. Dec. 1 at Olympia Bowl for the release of the name of the 2014 Tom Hortons Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake Honourary Chair.
