Cowley�s Mulvane Center sponsors Bowl for Kid�s Sake event
Cowley College in Mulvane sponsored its first Big Brothers/Big Sisters Bowl for Kid’s Sake event for Sumner County on Saturday, April 7 at Derby Bowl and raised $2,883.54.
Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Sumner County serves the city of Mulvane by working to meet the needs of many resident children. This event provided Cowley’s Mulvane Center a great opportunity to increase community awareness of what Big Brothers/Big Sisters is doing within the community and increase its ability to do more in the future.
Mulvane students and staff embraced the opportunity to serve the community through their support. Several individuals, including students and staff serve as a Big Brother or Big Sister in Mulvane or surrounding areas. Students and staff worked together throughout the spring semester to raise money through fundraisers and requests for donations. Fundraising events included a sloppy joe lunch, chili dogs, nachos, pancakes, bake sales, and popcorn sales.
Team Captains for the event included Student Ambassadors Dallas Welch, Chris Romero, Erin James, Chrisinda Hunter, Josh Holcomb and Mulvane Coordinator Cynthia Jones with team members including advisor Ali Ybarra, students, friends, and family members.
The Bowl for Kid’s Sake event was met with much enthusiasm as Shawn Wheat with KSOK led the group with fun activities and gave out prizes. Pizza and Pepsi were enjoyed as Wheat announced our totals and congratulated the teams.
“We are grateful to everyone who participated,” Jones said.
Jones also thanked the following local businesses who supported the event through prize donations: Luciano’s, Calabrone’s, Sun & Spa, Spangles, Wichita Wild, Mulvane Tire & Auto Repair, Olive Garden, Pizza Hut, and the Mulvane News.
