BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE WAS AGAIN A BIG SUCCESS.......THANKS TO THE GREAT SPONSORS, VOLUNTEERS AND OF COURSE ALL THE TEAMS AND THE PEOPLE THAT PLEDGED ON LINE....
2008 BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE RAISED $ 125,000.00 To benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley.
This was my first year as chairman of BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE..and I just want to take time to thank Service Electric TV-2 for many years of outstanding coverage of this event....and of course the owners and staff of Jordan Lanes..who also have been on board long before I became involved. It was truly a pleasure to meet and partner with you all- and spend time with everyone involved.
What made this year extra challenging was the fact that this was not your typical fundrasing year for Big Brothers Big Sisters.......there were funding cutbacks and corporate donation changes that effected not only the $$ amounts but amount of teams bowling as well- AND THE 2008 TEAMS & SPONSORS STILL KICKED BOOTY !
