Scheffel Boyle employees recently teamed up to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois at the annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser.
Scheffel Boyle’s teams have brought in more than $2,900 in donations for the agency, and that amount may not be the final count as donations are still coming through.
Scheffel Boyle’s two bowling teams participated in the event Jan. 28 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, CPA and principal at Scheffel Boyle’s Edwardsville office, serves on the Board of Directors for BBBS of Southwestern Illinois and is excited to see his co-workers rally behind an organization he is passionate about supporting.
“We look forward to this event every year and usually make it our goal to raise more than we did the year before. I’m excited to say that we accomplished that again this year for BBBS,” Weber said. “This is something that is planned and promoted by our employees and just shows what great people we have working for this firm. Their commitment during tax season to take some personal time for this great cause is very appreciated by myself, everyone at Scheffel Boyle, BBBS, and all the kids they help in our community.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois has been changing lives of youths for more than 100 years. According to their website, they are recognized “as the nation’s largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network.” Their mission to “nurture children and strengthen communities” is supported through donations and fundraising events, such as Bowl for Kids’ Sake.
Bowl for Kids’ Sake has five other event dates until mid-April. For information on how to donate or participate, visit www.bbbsil.org/bowl.
