Help me help them... Bowl For Kids' Sake 2009

Do you remember who helped you catch your first firefly? Or who told you as a young person that you could achieve anything? Thousands of children in central Ohio think of and thank their Big Brother or Big Sister when asked these very questions.


On Saturday, February 7, 2009 I am bowling in the 26th Annual Bowl For Kids' Sake, Big Brothers Big Sisters' largest fundraiser of the year. I need your help to ensure that this valuable youth service agency can continue its important mentoring programs which inspire at-risk youth to become confident, competent and caring individuals in our community.

This is certainly a lot to be asking, definitely in these tough economic times, but now, more than ever, Big Brothers and Big Sisters are in need of your help. Due to massive cut back and layoffs in Central Ohio a lot of mentors have been dropping out of the program.

Join me in making a BIG difference in the lives of children. Click this link to my personal online donation page to make your secure credit card donation. You will automatically receive a tax receipt via email. If you prefer to make a donation in my honor offline, please send a check, made payable to "BBBS/BFKS", to:
