Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butte To Host Bowling Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butte-Silver Bow is hosting its 32nd annual "Bowl for Kids Sake" fundraiser this weekend in Butte, and organizers are hoping to have more people sign up before Saturday.

The fundraiser is the biggest of the year for the organization.

On average the bowling event generates 25% of the budget.

This year Big Brothers and Big Sisters has not received some of its grant money due to the government shutdown, so this weekend's event is even more important.

"We're about three months behind on receiving some of the grants that was sent our way, so that's really impacted anything we can do," said Executive Director Linda Palagi.

Bowling teams should be made of five to six people.

Each must pledge $100 to bowl.
