Staff report



SIDNEY — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke will be holding their annual Roll for Kids’ Sake on Thursday, Jan. 25, from 6 to 10 p.m. The party is open to the public and will be held at Rolling Hills Skate located at 105 E. Russell Road in Sidney.

The cost is $10 per person and includes admission, skate rental, face painting, snacks, and door prizes. This year’s theme is “School Pride” and the first 50 people dressed in school logoed attire will receive a gift.

All proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County’s Big Buddies after-school mentoring programs. Big Buddies is a nine-month commitment where high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors volunteer two times per month to mentor elementary students. During these meetings, high school students, under the supervision of Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, work with one or two children on different educational and recreational activities. This year’s program is focusing on ecological awareness and earth-friendly practices. Big Buddies also promotes social and emotional development through various activities.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit, United Way member agency, and is supported through financial contributions and annual fundraisers. Their next major fundraiser, Bowl for Kids’ Sake, will be held on March 2 and 3 at both Treaty Lanes in Greenville and Bel-Mar Lanes in Sidney. If you would like to make a big difference in the life of a child, either through volunteering, financial contribution, or event sponsorship; contact the agency at 937-492-7611, 937-547-9622, or go to www.bigbrobigsis-shelbydarke.org for more information.
