Westminster College Students Open "Bowl for Kid's Sake" to Community

Several Westminster College students who volunteer with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Lawrence County are asking the Westminster College community to join them in "Bowl for Kids Sake" Saturday, April 3, at the Colonial Bowling Lanes in New Castle.

"In the past, we asked the fraternities and sororities on campus to participate, but we hope to branch out to the faculty, staff, their families, and the community," said Joanna Badger, a junior public relations major and co-coordinator of the event from New Wilmington. 

Teams of four to six people are needed to fill one-hour slots.  Each team member is asked to raise $35 in sponsorship money, and will received a free game of bowling, lunch, a "Bowl for Kid's Sake" T-shirt, entertainment, a chance to participate in a Chinese Auction, and chances to win great prizes.  Teams can register until March 26 by calling Suzanne Mrozek at (724) 657-3680.

 Big Brothers/Big Sisters is dedicated to bring in caring role models to the lives of children in need of a mentor in the community.  "Bowl for Kid's Sake" brings in up to 30% of the yearly budget.

"This is just for fun bowling," Badger said.  "There's no bowling skill needed."
