EDWARDSVILLE — Employees of Scheffel Boyle CPAs recently teamed up to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois at the annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser.
The firm’s employees raised $5,000 for the agency at the event, which will be donated directly to the organization.
Scheffel Boyle’s two bowling teams, the Tax Manian Devils and the Ten-Key Strikers, participated in the event May 10 at Edison’s Entertainment Complex in Edwardsville. Each of the firm’s 10 bowlers had their own fundraising efforts involving social media activity and networking to come up with every dollar they could for the event.
Scott Weber is a principal at Scheffel Boyle’s Edwardsville office and serves on the Board of Directors for BBBS of Southwestern Illinois. Weber said he is always excited to see his coworkers rally behind an organization he is passionate about supporting.
“I’m continually impressed by what our employees can do when they set their mind to it,” Weber said. “They always try and top the donations from the year before and they have yet to fail. We are proud to support BBBS and contribute to their mission in our community.”
BBBS has been changing lives of youth throughout the United States for more than 100 years. Its mission to “nurture children and strengthen communities” is supported through donations and fundraising events, such as Bowl for Kids’ Sake. For information, visit www.bbbsil.org.
