Bowl for Kids Sake!

I am holding my first ever Sassa Nova Blog Contest to support Bowl for Kids Sake (BFKS)! This event raises money for my local Big Brothers/Big Sisters agency. In fact, this one event raises nearly 40% of the total annual budget for Big Brothers/Big Sisters.

This event means so much to me because of the smart, funny, super cool 13-year-old by my side, Ranette. We have been matched through Big Brothers/Big Sisters for three and a half years and we have loved every minute of it! OK, she doesn't look like she is loving the particular minute that was captured in this picture, but do you know how hard it is to get a 13-year-old to smile? Especially when she is super cool AND surrounded by her super cool friends!

Ranette and I will be bowling at the BFKS event on February 23rd and we need sponsors! If you can spare $5, please donate online here. Leave a comment saying that you donated (no need to say how much) and I will enter you in a contest to win a great knitting prize. Only 3 people read this blog so you have a REALLY good chance of winning. Good luck!

LOL @ not happy in that 1 minute! :o)

Gurl I didn't know you were a Big!! Yah!! And you have done it for almost 4 years. That is just wonderful Renee! I bet she knows how knit huh?? Haha!! .....she better!!!! :oD

Okay I donate. But you may want to edit you blog post to direct folks to click on the "Sponsor Participant" link and then type in your name. Because we don't necessarily want to 'register' for the bowling event but just donate. FYI

Thanks for the heads up, Stacey. That link should work now.

You have a 1:1 chance of winning! Woo hoo!

Best of luck to you and Ranette in the big bowl-off! Stacey directed me here to your site, and I'm fresh back from the donation page. ;-)

Hey, dear friend.
Bowl your brains out for me!
I only bowl when I can use the bumpers down the alley!
