Curl for Kids Sake and be a hero to children
Local businesses and residents are getting their curling arms ready for Big Brothers Big Sisters’ annual fundraiser – Curl for Kids Sake 2013. It’s their most important fund raising event of the year taking place November 1 & 2, 2013 at the Cranbrook Curling Centre.
Teams from all over the Cranbrook and Kimberley area have been collecting pledges online and on pledge forms to raise money for community mentoring programs. This year’s Curl for Kids Sake fund raising target is $20,000, and Big Brothers Big Sisters is counting on the campaign to finance more than 20 per cent of the agency’s youth mentoring services in 2013/2014.
“We truly appreciate the efforts of the teams and sponsors participating. The pledges the teams collect and contributions received is what makes our youth mentoring programs possible” says Dana Osiowy, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cranbrook. “Our local agency has more than 15 children and youth on waiting list for a Big Brother or Big Sister. This campaign not only raises money, it also raises awareness for our organization and the programs we offer. Curl for Kids Sake is a meaningful way to directly help kids and it’s also great fun.”
There are spots still available. All it takes is a team of four, a pledge form and an outfit from your favorite decade. Also this year, the event is a celebration of Big Brothers Big Sisters 100th Anniversary.
The Curl for Kids Sake campaign is dedicated to driving local funds towards local kids in need of a mentoring relationship. Donations ultimately strengthen the community by helping children and youth to learn, grow and succeed.
