Bowling right along

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley kicks off its 24th annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser on Feb. 6 and 7.

The launch of the event takes place Feb. 6 in Abbotsford at Galaxy Bowladrome with the Abbotsford Police and on Feb. 7 in Chilliwack at Chillibowl Lanes with an appearance by the Chilliwack Chiefs.

Both events run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Bowl for Kids Sake 2013 has more than 20 bowling sessions available, and special arrangements can be made to accommodate groups.

Sessions begin Feb. 20 in Chilliwack and wind up March 16 in Abbotsford. Events are planned at a number of bowling alleys, including Galaxy Bowladrome in Abbotsford.

Funds raised by Big Brothers Big Sisters help to screen, support and match a volunteer mentor with a child, creating lasting friendships and providing positive and supportive role models to children, helping them reach their full potential.

Board chair Daniel Sorensen said there are 50 local corporate sponsors and as many as 1,000 bowlers that support Bowl for Kids’ Sake, which is presented by Prospera Credit Union.
