It’s par-tee time!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel (BBBSQ) is excited to announce that Golf for Kids’ Sake will be taking place on June 2. This is the 12th year that BBBSQ will host the fundraiser – but we have made some very exciting changes, just in time to celebrate BBBSQ’s 40th anniversary!

BBBSQ will be partnering with CIBC Financial Services to offer a bigger and better event than ever. Thank you CIBC for this wonderful opportunity and your belief in our services.

The fun-filled day will be hosted by the Quesnel Golf Club, with a dinner and silent auction to follow. Registration is $75 per person and includes dinner – there will also be incentive prizes for collecting pledges. The shotgun start will be at 11 a.m.

By participating in Golf for Kids’ Sake, you will help support our mentoring services that currently serve 117 children through our community and school-based programming at no cost to children, families or schools. All funds raised from this event will stay local to benefit our community.

Golf for Kids’ Sake is a wonderful way to build team morale or catch up with friends, so gather a group of four friends, family members or co-workers and get ready to have some fun!

Please call Joanie at 250-992-7257 to register by May 15. Sponsors and silent auction donations are also needed – if you would like to help make Golf for Kids’ Sake a success, please call our office. Every donation will help us make a difference for the children in Quesnel.

BBBSQ would like to give a BIG thank you to all the participants, sponsors, donors and volunteers that helped us make Bowl for Kids’ Sake a success. We are exceedingly grateful for the generosity and support we receive from the Quesnel community year after year. With your help, we raised over $16,000 to help us sustain and expand our mentoring services!

Shaina Hawn is the mentoring co-ordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel.
