Bowl For Kids’ Sake is approaching

RUSHVILLE — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rush County will soon be offering area residents a chance to have a good time and help raise some much needed funding in the process.

BBBS volunteers are preparing for the organization’s annual fundraiser, Bowl For Kids’ Sake.

This year, Bowl For Kids’ Sake will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 28 at Rushville Bowl. Teams bowl for one hour each.

Past participants will tell you this is a fun outing for families, business groups, sporting groups, sororities and other local social clubs.

It’s easy to get involved and give back to the children in our community.

Here are the four steps involved with doing your part.

1. Form a team of four to six people.  

2. Register your team for your hour of bowling by calling 765-932-5449 or send me an e-mail to elizabeth.bbbs@gmail.com.

3. Raise funds for your team. The goal is a minimum of $25 per bowler.  

4. Show up Sunday, April 28 during your time.

Door prizes are given out during the event. Awards are also presented to those who turn in the most funding by April 28.

The top donor will receive a $250 VISA gift card. Other prizes include tickets to Holiday World and box seats at Indianapolis Indians games.
