Indian River Community Foundation has been a supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters for more than two years. This year is no different. Big Brothers Big Sisters was awarded a grant that will expand a successful one-to-one mentoring and family literacy program at two Indian River County child care centers. Sixty-four children will be tutored in reading by trained AmeriCorps volunteers. Evening parent workshops, with child care and dinner provided, will reinforce the lessons.
Thank you to our two Honorary Chairs for this year’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake: Linda Hudson, Mayor of Fort Pierce and Gregory Oravec, Mayor of Port St. Lucie. Thank you for your support of Big Brothers Big Sisters programs and helping bring these two communities together to better help serve our children.

Thank you to all of our Sponsors for Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2015! Without you this event would not have been a glowing success!
Big Brothers Big Sisters held their 26th Annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake on September 26th at Superplay USA. We had a GLOWING go time! Thank you to all the teams that participated! You are all GLOW Getters for helping support our programs in St. Lucie County!
We are so grateful to our community for its incredible support of Big Brothers Big Sisters through events like Bowl-for-Kids’ Sake! It’s phenomenal to think that nearly 100% of our schools participate along with local businesses, civic groups and governmental leaders. Contributions to BFKS help to fund our reading mentor program for children who are struggling academically in Kindergarten through 3rd grades. When you contribute, you help change a child’s life.
Judi Miller, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters
