The 2014 Scotiabank Bowl for Big Brothers Classic returns this spring as the largest fundraising event of its kind in North America.
Over 2,500 participants will take to their local bowling alleys as 250 team raise pledges in support of Big Brothers mentoring programs throughout the Lower Mainland. This is an opportunity to have a great time with friends, family, and colleagues while bowling, eating, drinking, all while giving back to a great cause.
Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver helps boys aged 7 – 14 who have limited to no contact with their fathers and are, as a result, considered at-risk to not reach their full potential. Matching them with positive adult male role models, the charity sees compelling impacts on boys who develop more confidence, perform better academically and are less likely to succumb to peer pressure. One in four local children is raised without an active father. There are currently 64 children on a waiting to be matched with a Big Brother.
