There is not a moment to spare! Registration for Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee’s 2013 Bowl for Kids’ Sake is now open.
People all over the Tri-Cities need to dust off their bowling shoes and come out to support this agency’s primary fundraising and friend-raising effort.
Over the past year Big Brothers Big Sisters has served 144 children in the Tri-Cities area by developing positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of the children served.
This year the agency wants to serve 30 more children than last year and that means raising $30,000!
“Children do not listen to speeches or talks, they respond, incrementally, to hours and hours of interaction.
That is what is so great about this program!
Each volunteer commits to putting in the hours necessary to change these children’s lives” said a local community supporter.
According to a recent study, one-to-one matches are the driving force behind making an impact on children.
A Big Brothers Big Sisters’ match is carefully administered and held to the strictest standards.
Agency staff strives for matches that are not only safe and well suited to each child’s needs, but also harmonious and built to last.
The entire matching process, from the initial screening to the final pairing—and beyond—is made possible by financial support so get out and bowl for this great cause.

“This year’s events will be on April 11th in Bristol at Belmont Lanes, April 12th in Johnson City at Holiday Lanes, and April 13th in Kingsport at Warpath Lanes,” added Katie Carrico, Regional Director.
“Find the night that works best for you and come out and support this worthy cause and have some fun while you’re at it.”
