Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina has surpassed its goal of $100,000, thanks to sponsors and bowlers in Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Jackson, Macon, and Swain counties who have registered at the Bowl For Kids’ Sake website (

Times, places and details for Bowl For Kids’ Sake Cherokee/Clay/Graham counties and Bowl for Kids’ Sake Macon/Jackson/Swain counties, both on March 25, are available at the registration website.

This super-fun annual event raises money to support local youth. Proceeds help staff vet and train prospective mentors who commit to being a Big Brother or Big Sister for at least a year. There are more than 300 children in the 18 mountain counties BBBSWNC serves who are waiting for a Big. Local and national surveys show that having a Big improves a child’s experiences at home and at school.
