NYSID Employees Let the Good Times Roll and Bowl for Kids’ Sake

Category: General — NYSID @ 12:52 pm

NYSID recently rolled some strikes and picked up their spares to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region’s (BBBSCR) Bowl for Kids’ Sake at Spare Time Latham.

The NYSID bowlers included: Brian Bateman, LaToya Corbin, Noel DeGiovine, Tiffany Ford, Mary Louise Gates, Tom Occhiogrosso, Jeanine Rutt, Cynthia Slovensky, and Evan Terwilliger.

“Bowl for Kids Sake was a fun opportunity for myself and my teammates to support the meaningful work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region and the tremendous support they provide to the community’s children,” said Mary Louise Gates. “NYSID made a corporate pledge of $750 that allotted us two lanes and two team of bowlers. We had 10 players in total and were each given our own individual  fundraising page to raise even more money for BBBSCR, and collectively we raised an additional $450!”

Elena Kyprianou Marosek, event coordinator, BBBSCR, thanked NYSID for its support of Bowl For Kids’ Sake.

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your fundraising efforts,” she said. “You raised $440 as a team, in addition to NYSID’s $750 corporate sponsorship. Amazing. We are so grateful for your support. I hope you and your team had a great time bowling. Thank you again so much.”

BBBSCR provides children facing adversity with strong, enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships. Established nationally in 1904, and in 1964 in the Capital Region, Big Brothers Big Sisters is one of the oldest mentoring programs.
