All proceeds raised go towards South Cariboo District youth programs

The Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bowl for Kids Sake fundraiser is back for its fourth year.

The funds raised will be staying in the South Cariboo and used to help the programs available for youth in the community.

During the event, grand prizes will be awarded to the top individual fundraisers, as well as team prizes for the best dressed and most enthusiastic teams.

“I am really excited to see what the teams come up with. I think the theme is going to be a fun one,” said Thomas.

For registration, the teams must consist of four to six members. Refreshments and one large pizza provided for each registered team.

The evening is split up into three, two-hour sessions. The 6 p.m. time frame is full, but there are openings for the 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. time frames.
