Dayton Area Realtors Go Bowling for Big Brothers Big Sisters

August 17, 2017 – The Dayton Area Board of Realtors (DABR) will be at Beaver-Vu Bowl in Beavercreek from 12-3pm on Friday, August 18, to lend their support to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Miami Valley (BBBS). Realtors from all around the Dayton area will participate in “Bowl for Kids’ Sake”, putting on their bowling shoes and hitting the lanes in a quest for strikes to raise money for BBBS. It’s just one of the ways Realtors give back to the Dayton community.

“Community service is a core value of Realtors,” stated Karen O’Grady, president of DABR. “Big Brothers Big Sisters is just a wonderful organization, and we are proud to take part in an event that helps to enhance children’s lives. The teams are made up of real estate firms and families competing against one another, but regardless of who gets the high score, BBBS kids will be the big winners. It’s going to be great fun!”

BBBS has been taking part in “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” since 2007. The local organization’s second largest fundraiser, “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” raises more than $70,000 each year to help children facing adversity in the greater Miami Valley succeed in school and in life. BBBS relies on donations to carefully pair children with caring adult mentors and to provide consistent match support for the volunteers, children and their families so that the mentoring lasts and the outcomes are positive.

As members of the community, Realtors take part in a number of community initiatives throughout the year, from volunteering with Rebuilding Together to rehab homes, to donating money and materials to Dayton area schools and credit counseling services. DABR’s Foundation provides scholarships to dependents of Realtors, and their annual holiday reception serves as Dayton’s largest source of donated toys to the Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots.

“Bowl for Kids’ Sake” will take place on Friday, August 18 from noon until 3pm at Beaver-Vu Bowl, 1238 N. Fairfield Road in Beavercreek. To take part in this event, visit http://bbbsgmv.org/dabr.
