The 41st Annual Gary Haggart Bowl for Kids’ Sake Is in the Books!
February 20- February 23, 2020 – After months of planning and organizing the bowling portion of the 41st Annual Gary Haggart Bowl for Kids’ Sake held at Galaxy Lanes, has come to its conclusion. However, pledges are still being collected as we seek to come closer our goal.
Generous sponsorship’s to Big Brothers Big Sisters leverages tremendous support from the Flint and Genesee County community. This year we raised $49,360 in corporate sponsorship’s.
We estimate our grand total to reach $130,000 in sponsorship’s and pledges. We appreciate the community’s commitment to our mission to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. Together, we are “Defenders of Potential.”
The event was a great success and supported 273 teams. The comradery of the community shined throughout the weekend. The diversity of our participants such as the media, elected official, financial institutes, corporations, faith based, and individuals showed a great rallying spirit for our youth. As always, we are humbled by the love and support for our Littles. The community’s partnership helps sustain and grow our mentoring services at a time when youth face tremendous adversity. Every dollar has a great impact on our local services throughout the community.
On behalf of the children who will benefit because of your efforts, we thank you and hope you will continue to join us in future opportunities to strengthen Big Brothers Big Sisters and improve the way children grow up in Genesee County!
