ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Friday is day two of Luau on the Lanes and there were plenty of smiling faces bowling at the Sunrise Strikes Bowling Alley.
The fundraiser has raised nearly fifty thousand dollars already, and there is still one more day to go. Big Brothers Big Sisters Executive Director, Jenni Masterson says the organization’s goal is to reach $85,000.
“Today is the second day of our annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake our Luau on the Lanes. We have today and tomorrow yet for bowling times and we are really looking forward to another great evening. So far, we’ve made $47,720 to our goal of $85,000 and all the money stays right here in Muskingum, Guernsey, Morgan and Noble County,” said Masterson.
Masterson is expecting the turnout to be really great Friday evening at the bowling alley. She says the money goes directly into helping pair the children with mentors. Masterson also says it’s not about the bowling, it’s about helping out children in the communities, and having fun.
Masterson added “Bowl For Kids Sake is our biggest fundraiser of the year and so we really count on that money to help support all of our matches. We match one to one volunteers with kids that need help and this supports that match, helps us do all the background checks, helps us maintain match support and for our school based programs helps us plan our activities.”
If you want to bowl, it is not too late to sign up. The minimum team donation is $500. They’re looking for more teams to come for tomorrow.
