$90,000 raised from the Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids' Sake 2020!

**A MUST READ & WATCH!** Over $90,000 raised towards mentoring! Below is an impact story and words from BBBSLC's Executive Director, Sandra Burelli. This is WHY we do what we do!"I never expected that on the busiest, most exciting day of our fundraising year, that I’d be humbled (to actual tears) into understanding the magnitude and humility of what our amazing team at #bigbrothersbigsistersoflanarkcounty really does! When you’re done looking at grant applications and spreadsheets and data entry-it’s easy to forget the whole point. Then, Saturday, I drove around to every bowling alley in the county and met funders, champions, advocates and supporters of every description. What I didn’t expect for some reason, was to meet now ADULT littles. I heard stories that would reduce anyone to puddles. I talked to littles whose lives have been irrevocably changed for better thanks to the support, influence and opportunities offered to them by their Bigs over sometimes decades! I met one 38 year old yesterday who did not have a father in his life who was matched with his big at 12 years old (and was bowling with him!). His whole family, including his daughter, thanked us for what became of his whole life thanks to BBBSLC. His wife told me about her husbands business, her daughters horses, and how his BIG (and his wonderful wife) helped them start a life together. I drove off to the next alley feeling moved and irrevocably changed myself. What we do matters. What you did Saturday really, really matters! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for bowling! Thank you to our fearless Fund Developement Coordinator Angie Beaupre for her relentless efforts In making the event a success and our other team captains Bridget Manahan (Perth team) and Natalie Downing (Carleton Place team) for their incredible leadership! To the entire staff for pounding the pavement for over two months and the 12 hour day Saturday, #respect! #mentoringmatters #changealife #volunteer
