News and Events - May 9, 2018

The staff and board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Family Services of NW PA hope  this year’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser will be a perfect 300.

Bowl For Kids’ Sake, the signature fundraiser of Big Brothers Big Sisters, kicked off last Friday with “Erie Insurance Night.” As a Gold Sponsor, Erie Insurance filled both sessions on May 4, resulting in participation from more than 275 employees. In addition, the company has committed to matching donations made by participating employees.

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield returned as the Platinum Sponsor for the ninth consecutive year. Other major sponsors include Erie Sand & Gravel and Scott Enterprises.

“We continue to be overwhelmed by the support of our sponsors in the community,” said Paula Hayes, Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters in Erie. “We hope 2018 will be our best year yet!”

The fun continues this Friday, May 11 at Greengarden Lanes and wraps up Friday, May 18. Overall, more than 800 bowlers are expected to participate in this year’s event.

Bowl For Kids’ Sake continues to be the largest fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Family Services of NW PA. 100% of proceeds go directly into the program to recruit new volunteers, support current matches, and host match events.
