Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Chattahoochee Valley are bowling for a cause and raising money for their program that works to provide positive role models in the community.
It’s the organization’s “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” event where mentors and their littles enjoy a night out at the Stars and Strikes bowling alley.
“It means a lot to me- due to the fact, just seeing a smile on his face you know and him engaged in the activities that we are doing, he’s just really taking a break from everything you know because he may be having a bad day at school and this is more like a stress reliever, so it’s real good for him,” says Big Brother, Ryan Grimes.
Grimes says going bowling is only a small snippet of what the group does. He says he visits with his Little Brother, Cameron Smith, at least once a week.
Smith says he enjoys going to church with Grimes.
“I have fun all the time and with other people it makes me happy,” says 10-year-old Smith of the night out bowling.
Director Erica Lee says this event raises money so that more children and mentors can join the program.
