Wii Bowl for the Kids

Wii Bowl for the KidsOver the course of the past month Geonetric’s Bowling Alley Sallys team has had the opportunity to raise funds and support for the Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) Bowl for Kids Sake annual fundraiser.  This is the third year that we have taken the opportunity to participate in this event and take a moment to make an investment into the lives of children right here in Eastern Iowa.

Big Brothers Big Sisters roughly serves 800 children in our area and there are many more on the waiting list that need caring adult mentors and friends.  With the funds raised by Bowl for Kids Sake, BBBS can continue to provide resources to children.  The average cost to support a year long relationship between a “Big” and an at-risk child is roughly $1,000.00.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is or has been part of the lives of a handful of our employees as they have served in some capacity with the organization, either as a Big or as a Lunch Buddy.  One of our bowlers recently celebrated being matched five years with their Little.

We hope that our bowling skills translate as well on the real lanes this week as they did when we Wii bowled with the entire company to raise funds for BBBS.  Watch out Eastern Iowa, here come the Bowling Alley Sallys.
