Southeastern Indiana came together once again to support mentoring in the community, and made the third annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake event a huge success.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati puts on the event—held at Durbin Bowl. In only its third year, the Indiana Bowl For Kids’ Sake raised more than $10,000, tripling the first year totals.
The communities rallied around this event from the beginning. Mayors from Greendale and Lawrenceburg sponsored teams, the cities of Aurora and Rising Sun were Lane sponsors.

Small businesses got involved, too. The Framery worked with pairs from Big Brothers Big Sisters.

The Big Brother and Big Sister mentors helped their Little Brothers and Little Sisters decorate bowling pins that would become trophies.

In the first round of bowling, the first place trophy went to Friendship Bank - for the third year in a row! The City of Greendale team won the second round.
Laura Rolf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati, is thrilled with the event and appreciates the community support. She says, “With the amazing support and work of the Advisory Board and the community our 2013 Bowl for Kids Sake was an terrific success. With more dollars we can serve more children in our community. We look forward to 2014 when even more businesses and individuals step up to support Mentoring and Youth, and have fun at the same time.”

Contributing to the fun, Segway offered everyone a chance to take a ride and donated a package of two tours for the Bowl For Kids Sake auction.

Prizes like a Kindle Fire and photo package by Nathan Deaton Photography were highlights as well.

Also on hand, Big Sisters Christy Hawkins and Danielle Estep, with their Little Sisters Anna and Maria; Merchant’s Bank sponsored their team. Their presence reminded everyone in attendance of the Big Brothers Big Sisters mission to help children be successful in school and in life.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati serves children in Southeastern Indiana, Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
