There were good things happening at the Robbinsdale Lanes bowling alley on Saturday April 27th. The entire Team at Common Cents came through
once again collecting pledges totaling $32,000. I was both impressed and grateful for everyone’s participation and outstanding pledge totals. It was
quite satisfying to witness what we can accomplish when we get behind a great program like the Big Brother Big Sister program.
Gillette will receive the honors with the largest pledge total of $7700. Bell Fourche raised $4807, and LaCrosse raised $2753. Spearfish, Lead, Wall,
and the office all raise over $2000 per location. Individually Tabitha Palmer (Gillette) raised $1965, Richard Paige (LaCrosse) raised $1850, and
Amanda Fantarella (Gillette) raised $1442 as the top three individual. Many other stores raised over $1000.

I would personally like to thank all of you for participating in this year’s event. With out your help we could not make dreams come true.
