WINCHESTER, VA (February 22, 2012) --- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winchester, Frederick and Clarke counties (BBBS) is hosting their annual fundraiser, Bowl for Kids’ Sake, on March 3rd from noon to 7pm at Northside Lanes in Winchester, Virginia.

Local Ameriprise Financial is the title sponsor for the second year.
The event kicks off with the Classic Bowl round, encouraging teams of four or five to pledge a minimum of $250. The second half of the event, Bowling for Bucks invites other area groups or nonprofits to bring a team to bowl between three and six. All bowlers are welcome during this round, but can designate a charity for a chance to win prize money during each hour. Prize winnings will be based on team participation.
Juli Ferrell, Executive Director says, “This is such a fun event. Our mentors, their littles, friends and family, even businesses can bowl for a team build. We need teams this year to make it successful. We want to gain support for our programs, but also connect with our community in a way that is fun for everyone.”
