GET THOSE PUTTERS READY!!!!
The 2014 Putt-A-Round is right around the corner!
Date: January 21st-23rd
Location: RiverCenter, Davenport
What is the Putt-A-Round?
Where else can you go miniature golfing and help improve graduation rates in the Quad Cities? The answer is the Putt-A-Round! The Big Brothers Big Sisters Putt-A-Round promises to be a week of fun while helping area youth. Sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank, Iowa, Putt-A-Round is one of BBBS' key community events that raises important funds to support one-to-one mentoring programs in the Quad Cities. Over the nine-year history of the event, a total of $350,000 has been raised to support one-to-one mentoring programs- that translates into supporting 4,000 children with the benefit of a positive/consistent adult in their lives!!!
Proceeds from the event are used to underwrite the safety and quality of one-to-one mentoring relationships between a vulnerable child and a positive consistent adult volunteer. Research shows that an adult who had a positive and consistent mentor growing up was more likely to graduate high school and college, have steady employment, healthy relationships and volunteer in their community.
Specifically, proceeds are used for the recruitment, screening, background checks, enrollment, matching, match support and assessments of child/adult mentoring relationships. This year, we expect to match and support over 800 matches!
