Halifax staff were busy in March, rolling up our sleeves to raise money in support of charitable organizations in the community. On top of participating in a fundraiser for the Children’s Wish Foundation, Admiral was also involved in Bowl for Kids Sake – a fundraiser to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada.
As the designated Charity Champion for the month of March, two teams of six bowlers worked hard to raise a combined $1,500 through the sale of raffle tickets, 50/50 draws and other inner-office contesting. The money raised will go towards assisting Big Brothers Big Sisters with future programming and services.
As part of Admiral's Charity Champion program, the company also contributed $1,000 towards the Big Brothers Big Sisters initiative, bringing the total raised for the non-profit to $2,500.
"This was our second year involved in Bowl for Kids Sake and what a time we had," participant Kyle Davis said.
"The team at Big Brothers Big Sisters provided the raffle tickets that we sold. They also did a fantastic job keeping us up to date on our fundraising progress. They were great to work with!"
At the end of our hard work and fundraising activities, we were able to enjoy two hours of bowling fun alongside other participating companies - a great way to close out our charitable commitments.
