Sundance Vacations Sponsors Bowl for Kids’ Sake
The organization’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake is the charity’s biggest fundraiser of the year, in which teams of bowlers raise pledges to help children seeking mentors. In fact, Big Brothers Big Sisters had around 1,000 people attend their event!
Sundance Vacations Wilkes-Barre office was proud to donate $3,000 towards the bowling day to help them reach their fundraising goal.
All in the all, the event helped Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bridge raise $102,500 to serve 270 children in Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA).
The money will go towards matching Littles with the right Big Brother or Sister by professional staff.
“We are very grateful for the very kind and very generous donation that Sundance Vacations made towards Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2017,” said Tanya Olaviany, program director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Bridge. “It went a long way in helping the event reach its goal, and it will go a long way in helping serve the children of Northeastern Pennsylvania. We thank you, again, for the tremendous support.”
