Many of us have someone that we can look up to from a father or mother, or even a older brother or sister, but some kids in our community they don’t have that person to help them along. That’s where Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida comes in. Saturday was their annual fundraiser at rocket lanes in Panama CityBeach. 30 teams came out to compete head to head to raise money to help families with children that don’t have that mentor to help guide them.
Some members from news 13 were out bowling to show their support.
Christina Ingram from Big Brothers Big Sisters talks about what the ultimate goal is. “What we do at big brothers big sisters is preventive we are taking these kids and making sure that these kids become productive members of or community and hopefully when they graduate from our program they come back and help the community that help them,” says Ingram. This year organizers hope to raise 25 thousand dollars from the bowling tournament.
