On Saturday April 30th bowlers came from all over the Black Hills to Bowl for Kids’ Sake.Common Cents Team members were ready to show off
their bowling skills.The scores weren’t great, but the fundraising was impressive. We raised a lot of money for the Big Brothers
Big Sisters organization. I was both impressed and grateful for everyone’s participation and outstanding pledge totals.
Bell Fourche will receive top honors with the largest pledge total of $4820. Gillette came in a very close 2nd raising $4022 followed by Lead
at $3502, then LaCrosse at $3494.Moyle Office, Rushmore Rd, Wall, and Spearfish each raised over $1500 per location. Raising close to $1500 in pledges
was Sturgis and Canyon Lake.You should all be very proud of the monies raised, this fundraiser alone accounts for 1/3 of Big Brothers Big Sisters of
the Black Hills entire yearly budget!Your hard work does have a huge impact in our community and surrounding areas.
