Bowl For Kids' Sake Events in Juneau & Ketchikan Raise $54,000
Top three Bowl For Kids' Sake Volunteer Fundraisers from Ketchikan


May 19, 2004

Ketchikan, AK - Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Southeast Alaska announced the results of its high fundraiser contest Tuesday from this year's Bowl For Kids' Sake, held in both Juneau and Ketchikan. The prizes are based on the amount of pledges collected.

"We're excited to award these high fundraiser prizes," said BBBS Executive Director, Marc Wheeler. "We do it to thank those folks who put in the extra effort raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters."

Winning the top prize this is Rob Skinner, owner of Ketchikan's Lewis Motors, who collected an agency record $4375 in pledges. In second place is eleven-year old Courtney Enright, also of Ketchikan, with $3755. In third place is Dayna Hert, who works for First Bank in Ketchikan, with $1420. These top fundraisers will have their choice of a Caribbean Cruise for two on Celebrity Cruises, two west-coast round-trip tickets on Alaska Airlines (including Mexico), and a yellow gold diamond-tsavorite pendant and gold/demantoid garnet ring from Fire and Ice in Juneau.

Wheeler noted that all three of the regional high fundraisers hail from Ketchikan this year. "It's exciting to see Ketchikan residents show such strong support for our local program," said Wheeler. "And it's so wonderful to see a young girl like Courtney work so hard so other Ketchikan youth can have the benefit of a Big Brother or Big Sister."

In addition to the top three regional prizes another twenty Juneau bowlers and seven Ketchikan bowlers won high fundraiser prizes donated by local businesses (see list, attached).

"We'd like to thank all the businesses who donated prizes to make these awards possible," said Gretchen Klein, Ketchikan Program Manager. "These high fundraisers were one of the main reasons we were able to raise $24,000 for Ketchikan's kids in this year's Bowl For Kids' Sake and another $30,000 in Juneau."
