Thank you for visiting our Bowl for Kids’ Sake team fundraising webpage! We hope you’ll join us in our effort to help create more life-changing friendships for children facing adversity by supporting an impactful organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City. There are 400+ "Littles" waiting in Kansas City for their perfect "Big"!
Julie and Kensey have been matched for almost 3 years. Here is what Kensey and her Mom had to say recently about their friendship:
"Julie is awesome! We go out to eat, skating, shopping, and take carriage rides to the movies. She loves me very much and I love her. I have the best big sister in the world! She helps me with homework when I have it and I like talking to her on the phone. I love her so much and wish she could live with me!"
"I'm so proud of the improvement Kensey has made when it comes to being a better role model for her younger sister. I truly believe that Julie has made such an impact with Kensey when it comes to showing love and encouragement to others. I am so grateful for the time and energy Julie spends with our family."
I was matched with Kensey just a few days before my birthday. It was the best birthday gift I could have asked for! Initially, I decided to be a "Big" to try and make a difference in a child's life, however, little did I know, Kensey would have an enormous impact on mine! She has taught me how to appreciate the many simply things in life that I so often take for granted. It's been very exciting to see her transform into an amazing young girl. Seeing life through Kensey's eyes has been a true blessing to me!
My team and I are working together to reach our team fundraising goal of $2500 so that more children like Kensey will achieve success and develop meaninful relationships. Proceeds from this event will go towards matching children, right here in Kansas City with a Big Brother, Big Sister or Big Couple. Your donation helps develop more high school and college grads and community leaders; together we can make a difference.
Thank you so much for your support!! Sincerely, Julie and the SERC Strikers Team
