Big Brothers Big Sisters Fundraiser Far Exceeds Goal

On Friday, June 16, Helen Milliron, and the 12 bowlers who participated in Wii Bowl for Kids’ Sake, presented a check to Barrie Ann George, director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland and Perry counties in the amount of $7064.40.  The event was held on May 20 at Church of God Home in Carlisle where Milliron and the bowlers reside.  The event featured Wii bowling where participants raised funds based on how many strikes they would get.  Carlisle Mayor Tim Scott and Mechanicsburg policemen and Big Blue Brother Ryan McCormick were also in attendance.  “It was a huge success!  Helen’s original goal was to raise $1500, and she certainly did a great deal more than that.  This will have a positive effect on our youth and on our communities,” said Tom Maiello, director of public relations and communications for StoneRidge Retirement Living, the parent company of Church of God Home.  Helen set the 2018 Wii Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser for Saturday, May 19.
