Bowling fundraisers scheduled

OTTAWA — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Putnam County will kick off Bowl for Kids’ Sake with a “Party Bowl” at Ottawa Highland Lanes Jan. 31 with DJ Joe Burgei, followed by a “Glow in the Dark Bowl” at Pandora Sports Center Lanes Feb. 7.

Shifts at Ottawa will begin at noon, 1:15 and 2:30 p.m. Pandora bowlers begin at 1 and 2:15 p.m.

This year, Big Brothers Big Sisters has created incentives for bowlers to collect donations. In past years, bowlers were asked to raise a specific monetary amount. Now, bowlers who raise more will receive more.

A team of four that raises $120, for example, will bowl for free, receive a T-shirt, and be eligible to win door prizes. A team that raises $240 will receive all of that plus a large pizza and pitcher of drinks.

Information and registration forms are available on the Big Brothers Big Sisters website at or Facebook page, or by contacting Casey Simon at 419-523-4016 or email at [email protected]

Funds raised will allow Big Brothers Big Sisters to expand its programs in Putnam County.
