The Big Brother and Big Sister's 26th Annual Bowl for Kids' Sake fundraiser went well. From last I heard, they were getting close to their goal of $500,000, they had made quite a dent to the tune of $450K+. and internet donations had still to be updated. That's definitely a significant amount for such a great cause.
I would like to thank everyone who made donations as well as took the time out to come to the event. It ended up being a great time for old friends to catch up and to make new ones.
Some honorable mention I would like to do a shout out to are my bowling team mates who without their participation we would not have made our team fundraising goals.
