The Big Brothers Big Sisters Georgian Triangle Bowl for Kids’ Sake has been rolling along for 38 years! The Chestnut Park Realty Collingwood Office have always been a loyal team to the event. The event will raise nearly 30% of the annual budget for Big Brothers Big Sisters with over $100,000 expected to be raised this year. Nearly 300 local kids and youth depend on the success of this FUN-raiser so that they can participate in the many free mentoring programs that BBBSGT offers.
Every dollar raised helps match the kids with a mentor. Research shows that children who have been mentored have higher self-esteem and are more likely to stay in school, empowering them to succeed, give back and realize their true potential.
