Big Brothers Big Sisters is a national program that matches youth with positive adult role models, helping them succeed at home, in school and in life. On April 2, we held our annual fundraiser, Bowl for Kids’ Sake. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the more than 100 individuals, businesses and organizations that supported our fundraiser through their donations of cash and in-kind products and services, totaling a value of more than $6,000.

 And a very special shout out to our 42 bowlers who together raised over $5,000 for the local program, and to our volunteers who helped transform Kachemak Bowl into a fun and festive party. The incredible generosity of this community is quite something to witness and we are grateful to each and every person who showed us the Spirit of Giving.

  Want to help out year round? We’re always looking for Bigs and Littles. Call Trish in the Homer office at 235-8391 for more information. Thank you, Homer.
