Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters is a donor and volunteer supported organization which has served the children of Yavapai County and Sedona since 1971. It is my job to develop sustainable recruitment practices so that we may match our vulnerable children with a volunteer through one-to-one mentoring relationships.

Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl For Kid’s Sake is the largest child campaign fundraiser in Yavapai County. It costs Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters $1,000 a year to prevent incarceration by matching a child. I have been speaking to organizations and businesses asking for them to put a few teams together. All bowlers will bowl two games; enjoy free pizza, soda, and free beer for those over the age of 21. I am especially interested in the awards! I believe I will be the number one contender for the “Most Gutterballs”. There will be other awards and I am really excited about seeing the large number of people who are taking the first “bowl” in changing a child’s life. There will also be awards such as, “Best Costume” and “Most Enthusiasm”. What better way to spend 2 hours than having fun and changing a child’s life! Please support this wonderful cause.
I encourage businesses and organizations to challenge each other. If your organization is interested in putting together a team, please call the Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters office for more information.
You don’t have to change your life to change a Little’s, simply ask for a few pledges and start changing a child’s life one “pin” at a time. For more information call Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters at 778-5135 or visit www.azbigs.org.
