More than 150 members of our community and 50 companies and organizations come together each year in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lorain County. Our goal in 2O17 is to raise $20,000 for the hundreds of children we serve in Lorain County annually.
How does it work?
Teams of four to five bowlers compete to raise the most money and celebrate their efforts on Saturday, March 25, 2017, during two hours of bowling fun at Redman Recreation Center located in Lorain, Ohio! It's an exciting day full of live entertainment, local celebrities, raffle drawings, special prizes, and delicious refreshments! The more you raise, the more you win!
