Over $6000 Raised at Wii Bowl for Kid's Sake at Church of God Home

Helen Milliron is civic minded, and has enjoyed being actively involved in community projects throughout her life.  Helen is also a big supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters, a non-profit organization whose goal is to help children of all ages reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with volunteer mentors. 

Her latest endeavor was a fund raiser called “Wii Bowl for Kid’s Sake” which was held on Saturday, May 20.  Residents of Church of God Home, a StoneRidge Retirement Living Community in Carlisle where Helen also resides, participated in a Wii bowling tournament to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region.  Resident bowlers paid a $5 registration fee and also solicited sponsors who agreed to contribute $2 for every strike the bowler earned during the tournament.  The goal for the tournament was to raise $1500, but the final total was more than $6000!  Big Brothers and Big Sisters provided tee shirts for the event. Special guests included Carlisle mayor Tim Scott, Ryan McCormick, Mechanicsburg "Big Blue" policeman, and Barrie Ann George director of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Capital Region.

Those wishing to contribute may send a check payable to Big Brothers and Big Sisters, 201 N. Hanover Street, Carlisle, PA  17013, or, if you prefer, you may donate online through their web site at
