In 2016 the Engagement committee surveyed all BRT employees on where they felt we should give our time and talent to our community in 2017. In addition to our quarterly on site volunteering with Gleaners, we chose to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana and form a team for the event on May 11th, Bowl For Kids’ Sake.
Leading up to the event we raised money by collecting individual donations and holding a fun “Office Space” sytle event in which we donated money to take a swing at our old copier. (Here’s the full story).
Bowl for Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters largest national fundraiser, raising over $20 million annually for children in need across the country. Because of Bowl for Kids’ Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be created and improved outlooks on life can be started.
In total our team raised $850 placing us third highest fundraising team of the evening.
Our team enjoyed two hours of bowling, food, drinks and fun! Thank you to our BRT Team members for participating in a great event and congratulations to all of the BRT employees for all the money you raised for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana!
