Big Brothers Big Sisters 6th annual Bowl for Kids Sake was held at Churchill Plaza Lanes on Friday May 4th and generated over $7,900 for the youth of Sault Ste Marie while giving the participants a fun filled night of laughs and entertainment.
Mantracker’s sidekick Phil Lemieux, from OLN’s TV series ‘Mantracker’, was on hand to help “rope in” the entertainment for folks at the lanes. Lemieux signed autographs and posed for photos with fans all in support of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Sault Ste Marie.
Once the lights went down the fun continued throughout the night with RJ’s Market supplying free large pepperoni pizzas to all of the participating teams. There were two starting times throughout the night and both times were filled with the sound of laughter and a sea of smiles.
A silent auction was held with some great prizes up for grabs like Cirque de Solei tickets, Bryan Adams tickets, Root River golfing certificates, a free night stay at The Inn at Bay Harbour and more!
If participants shot a gutter ball they had to make a minimum .25 cent donation into coffee cans that were set-up around the lanes.
Some great prizes were awarded to the top two fundraising teams. Congratulations to the “Alley Cats” who raised $586 as a team.
“I am going to see Bryan Adams!” exclaimed the excited team captain, Cathy Chaput, regarding one of the many cool prizes she and her team won for raising the most money.
Congratulations are also in order for ‘The Webfilers’ the top competitive team which bowled a team score of 1102 in two games and won a trophy along with some small prizes.
“We all had a great time and can’t wait until next year.” expressed Andrew Allan, team captain of ‘The Webfilers’.
Event co-ordinators Steven McCoy and James Boynton would like to thank all of the participating sponsors and fundraisers who helped make the Big Brothers Big Sisters 6th annual Bowl for Kids Sake a big success. Check out the rest of the photos on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/soobowl4kids.
