Price hitting lanes to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters


PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- For the second consecutive year, David Price will participate in Big Brothers Big Sisters' largest fundraiser of the year, Bowl for Kids' Sake.

Funds raised from the event will allow the agency to pair more children with carefully screened volunteers, as well as provide professional ongoing support for each volunteer mentor and child.

People are encouraged to collect donations for Big Brothers Big Sisters and win a chance to be a VIP at the David Price Bowling Party. Last year, at the first David Price Bowl for Kids' Sake event, fans raised more than $27,000.

"It was great to meet and personally thank those who worked hard to raise money, so kids in our community can have a mentor," Price said. "I know first-hand how mentors can make a difference. I wouldn't be where I am today without the support from those who encouraged me to follow my dreams."

Information on how to participate can be found at bbbsfl.org or by calling Amy Hollington at 813-769-3636

The top 30 fundraisers (minimum of $1,000 in paid donations received by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay by March 25) will be eligible for the VIP party.

Price's VIP Bowling Party will take place on March 29 and is by invitation only. Details will be sent to guests, but includes four guest passes, two bowling games with shoes, food and drinks, T-shirts, goodie bags, Pin Chasers gift cards, and other gifts all month long.
