A Message From Bruce Eames
I have been affiliated with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley for the past 22 years, as a Big Brother in the past and again currently, Board Member, Board Chair and Interim CEO. Once again we are having our 2018 Bowl For Kids Sake Event, which is our largest Fund Raiser of the year. Bowl For Kids Sake supports our Mission to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professional supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better and forever. Our 2018 Signature Event takes place Sunday, March 4 at Parkway Lanes. Your generous support in the past has helped me raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley in our on-going service to the “at risk” Kids of the Lehigh Valley. With a goal of raising $145,000, which will help us serve 500 kids in our Community and School based programs. You can make a donation on this page by simple going to the “Donate” Link on my Team page, Mema and Pops Team I do truly appreciate your support in the past and thank you for your consideration again this year.

About This Campaign
Your fundraising efforts helps Big Brothers Big Sisters create life changing friendships for people like Sophie and Carolyn:
“Big Brother Big Sisters has helped me through so much. I am so absolutely grateful and thankful for Carolyn. She truly is a big part of me. She’s been my escape since I was fairly young and even till this day. She truly means so much to me.”
– Little Sister Sophie
“One of the best parts about being a Big Sister is being able to see my little grow – both in years and maturity/wisdom. I love being someone she can talk to and confide in – just the times we spend talking are the most meaningful. That and she’s always up for anything so it’s fun to experience new things together.”
– Big Sister Carolyn
