On behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass, I would like to thank Scott Schurz and everyone at The Advocate-Messenger for their effort in supporting our organization. The donation made from last Sunday's newspaper sales is greatly appreciated.
With our current economic trend, the services of Big Brothers Big Sisters are even more vital to help provide stability for the children in our program. It costs $1,100 to support one adult/child match for one year. We served more than 190 children in our service area in 2008.
I would like to encourage everyone to help support Big Brothers Big Sisters by putting together a bowling team for our Bowl for Kids' Sake. The event will be March 14 at Danville Bowlarama. Everyone who raises at least $75 will receive a Bowl for Kids' Sake T-shirt. This event supports children in Boyle, Mercer, Lincoln, Garrard and Jessamine counties.
