Church of God Home Wii Bowlers Raise $6643 for Big Brothers Big Sisters


In their second year of hosting a Wii Bowling competition among the residents of Letort Manor at Church of God Home in Carlisle, Helen Milliron and a cadre of like-minded neighbors raised $6643 for Big Brothers Big Sisters (BB/BS) of the Capital Region.  That brings their two-year total to nearly $14,000.  That is amazing considering there’s been a dozen or so dedicated bowlers participating.  The rest shows the great desire of this Church of God team to raise funds for these kids.  The event kicked off in late May at Church of God Home, a StoneRidge Retirement Living Community, and like last year, there was excitement and lots of fun.  That did not take away from the real focus, however, that of supporting the good work of BB/BS throughout the region.  Their program offers positive results for the youth involved, and it often leads to positive bonds with a “big” who offers advice, takes their “little” to the movies or helps with their homework and can be counted upon for support and encouragement.  Bravo Wii Bowlers at Letort Manor!  We will see you next year on Saturday, May 19, 2019!
