We Put the “Fun” into Fundraising

Giving back to the community is a pretty big deal here at Linn Area. For the 8th year in a row, we organized teams to participate in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kid’s Sake fundraiser.

For those of you unfamiliar with how this works, employees volunteer to bowl, each agreeing to raise a minimum amount to cover admission. In addition to the money raised through the bowlers, we (meaning me along with my fellow bloggers  Nick and Mallory) are the chefs for several very popular breakfast fundraisers. We served our world-class pancakes, sausages  and this year we even added omelets made to order (in the form of scrambled eggs with cheese on them…) to the menu!

Ready for our final results? We had 22 bowlers raise a total of $2,343! The average bowler increased their contributions from $83.13 last year to a whopping $106.50! We did great this year, and made a strong contribution to the fundraising goals of Big Brothers Big Sisters.

On behalf of the team of organizers, I’d like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone that was involved in this fundraiser over the last 3 months (although it may have seemed like longer to those within LACU who kept receiving my emails about it!). From the volunteers who bowled to those who participated in the breakfasts or donated to fellow employees, THANK YOU!
