Bowling for Big Brothers Big Sisters

9 Apr

By Iron Orchid

The Rock Coast Rollers did a little bowling this weekend to help raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters‘ annual Bowl for Kids Sake. This event is focused on raising money and awareness for big and little matches. For every $1,000 raised, a little person is paired with a big person at no cost to themselves or the family. The event is still running, so there’s still time to create a team, sign up, and raise money for a great cause. Get out there and bowl! For more information contact BBBS at 207-236-BBBS.
