WILKES-BARRE – Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Bridge has postponed four of its upcoming Bowl For Kids’ Sake events. The decision was based upon concerns regarding the coronavirus and upon recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other authoritative sources.

All bowlers and teams that had pre-registered to bowl at any of the previously scheduled Bowl For Kids’ Sake events are still considered registered for the rescheduled events. For those bowlers, the bowling locations and times will remain the same. All Bowl For Kids’ Sake sponsorships will be honored and displayed at the rescheduled events.

“Bowl For Kids’ Sake is the most important annual fundraiser for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program,” said Michelle Hamilton, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Bridge.  “We look forward to seeing everyone in May and June at our rescheduled events. But our main concern at this time is the well being of our communities and in keeping the spread of COVID-19 to a minimum. We appreciate the understanding of all of our supporters, sponsors and bowlers.”
