Students Bowl for Kid's Sake

4/6/2009 —

DuBois – Penn State DuBois students have contributed $850 to Big Brothers Big Sisters through Bowl for Kid's sake, held at the DuBois Lanes.

"This is an event organized and hosted by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Clearfield County," said student and member of the Campus Activities Board Shannon Kassab.  "Each year the organization urges clubs on campus to put together a team," Kassab said, noting that this fund raiser holds special meaning for her.  "Two of the members of the Campus Activities Board team, Crystal Vicklund and myself, are actually Big Sister mentors," she explained.

The Campus Activities Board team raised $600 dollars for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Student Government Association assembled a team that raised $250. 

According to Big Brothers Big sisters, Bowl for Kid's Sake has been the agencies' premier fundraiser for more than 40 years.  Each year, approximately 20 million dollars is raised nation-wide though Bowl for Kid's sake events.
