Donations sought for ‘Bowl for Kids’ Sake’

Big Brothers/Big Sisters holds its largest fundraiser Saturday, at Orchard Lanes.

“Bowl for Kids’ Sake” is a fun way to raise money and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Joella Dethman, director of Hood River Commission on Children and Families.

“Bowlers get to spread the word about the program when they ask community members for donations and they also get to bowl with other supporters at the liveliest fundraiser around,” she said.

BBBS matches children with a caring, trained volunteer who acts as a role model, providing friendship, guidance and support. The program supports more than 80 matches in the mid-Columbia.

It’s not too late to contribute. You can make a difference by going to and clicking on “donate now.”
