Teams of up to 6 bowlers hit the lanes to support Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Halton and raise funds for their mentoring programs for children and youth. The event was open to the public on April 6th at Champs Family Entertainment Centre in Milton and successfully raised over $12,000 in that one night from sponsors, donors and pledging teams. The Milton event was initiated by the Milton Ward 8 Town Councillor who takes an active involvement with the organization sitting on the Halton board.
BBBS creates individual and group mentoring relationships amongst adults and youth. Mentorship is a two-way, learning and development partnership where the young person’s needs are placed at the centre. This year alone BBBS impacted over 1200 youth in Halton, with additional positive impacts for their 800 mentors.
