         Be someone’s hero…
Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) invites you to participate in Bowl for Kids Sake 2016.  All funds raised support our mentoring programs. This year’s Superhero theme is a celebration of all the“hero’s” in our lives -- a perfect opportunity to reflect on our own personal heroes and mentors and remember how they have impacted us. You can be someone else’s hero by joining or starting a bowling team. Every participant is a hero for a local child who benefits from a match with a Big Brother or Big Sister. Having a mentor makes a “super” difference! So, dress up, have fun and release the superhero in you for a great cause.
 
                                Event Dates:  Fredericton – April 9 & 10th
        Oromocto - April 16th
 
Each bowler receives a pledge sheet to gather donations from friends, family and co-workers.  They then come out to bowl for an hour on event day. Funds raised go towards matching children and youth with mentors.  
Please contact Rhonda Rogers at 458-8941 or rhonda.rogers@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca   
Individuals turning in:
$125 receive a 2016 Bowl for Kids Sake T-shirt and 1 Grand Prize Ballot

In-School Mentoring Program Provides a Mentor and Friend

Mentored girls are two and a half times more likely than girls without a mentor to be confident in their ability to be successful at school while boys with a Big Brother are three times less likely than boys without a mentor to suffer peer pressure related anxiety, such as worrying about what other children think or say about them*.
