Each year there is fierce competition between the employees of Frenchy's four restaurants to see who can raise the most money for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Team captains joked around with "Frenchy" Michael Preston (far right) Saturday at Countryside Lanes before bowling: Alan Ebbert (Rockaway), Sarah Gordon (South Beach), Tyler Hipsley (Rockaway), Cheyenne Salisbury (Original Café, Jamie Listerman (Saltwater)
On Saturday, April 18th Pinellas area businesses and other groups from the community participated in the annual "Bowl For Kids' Sake" (BFKS) event to support Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Jenny Carlisle of Big Brothers Big Sisters said, "We raised over $67,000. That money goes to help provide one-to-one, professionally supported mentoring relationships for kids in our community. Every $1,000 raised will support one Big & Little match for a year. If someone who like to make a general donation to the BFKS campaign, they can go to www.bfks09.kintera.org/pinellas and click General Donation in the menu on the left, or if they know someone who is registered on the site as a bowler, they can contribute directly to his or her campaign page by clicking Donate to a Bowler from the menu."
