David Price Bowl For Kids’ Sake returns for 3rd year

For the third straight year, Rays pitcher David Price will help raise money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters through bowling.
Funds raised during the David Price Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser will help pay for the background checks and training of volunteers, as well as the support and supervision of each Big/Little ‘match’. Last year, Price’s efforts brought in more than $30,000.
“I’ve had a chance to meet some of the Bigs and Littles, and it’s amazing to hear about their relationships. Kids who may have been struggling in school, end up having better grades and staying out of trouble, thanks to the support of their Big Brother or Big Sister. Now, these same kids will have a chance to pursue their dreams, whether it’s being a baseball player or whatever the future holds.”
Here’s how you can join Price and help kids in the community:
• Join David’s online fundraising team at http://www.bbbsfl.org by clicking on the bowling logo or contact Amy Hollington, 813.769.3636.
• Top 30 fundraisers (who raise a minimum of $1,000) in paid donations received by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay by March 21 will be eligible for the VIP Party, which includes an autographed David Price baseball, free bowling games, food, drinks, t-shirts and prizes.
• The David Price VIP Bowling party on Saturday, March 29, 2014 is by invitation only—details will be sent to guests.
