HOOPESTON — Due to lack of participation the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl For Kids’ Sake event scheduled for Saturday at Fast Lanes has been canceled.
Executive Director Rose M. J. Henton said in a press release there will be no change in services to the youth served by the program.
The raffle items donated for the event will be used at the Parents Involved for Excellence (PIE) event for families March 7 at the Hoopeston Middle School.
“We thank Doug Waggoner who has donated his establishment, Fast Lanes, for the past three years,” Henton said in the release. “Doug is a real inspiration and wants to continue to make a difference with youth in Hoopeston.”
Anyone interested in bowling in one of the Danville events on March 8 or 9 or becoming a mentor should call 446-6601 for more information.
