A Note from our Board President, Bob Senter
Talk about a win-win opportunity.
This is a chance to support a worthwhile children’s cause and have a good time doing it.
Texas country music star Pat Green will perform at Galveston’s Grand 1894 Opera House on Saturday, August 8, and you will be helping Gulf Coast Big Brothers Big Sisters when you buy a ticket.
Your support will have a direct impact on children: It will enable us to help more children reach their potential through mentoring relationships that help them grow socially, academically and emotionally – with measurable impact. Through Gulf Coast Big Brothers Big Sisters, children are exposed to new aspects of life they may not otherwise experience, changing the way they grow up and contributing more to our community as a result.
As a non-profit organization, we are responsible for raising 100% of our program and operating budget, and each year for the past three decades Bowl for Kids’ Sake has been our largest annual fundraising event. It takes the form of a bowl-a-thon, with participants securing sponsors and then enjoying a big bowling party! Bowl for Kids’ Sake is scheduled for August 4, 9 and 11 this year at AMF Star Lanes in Texas City.
And since this is Gulf Coast Big Brothers Big and Sisters’ 40th anniversary, Pat Green is helping celebrate with his benefit performance at The Grand.
This promises to be another great sold-out performance, and you will want to be there. Pat Green puts on a fabulous show, attracting legions of devoted fans who love his Texas country style. He was born in San Antonio, raised in Waco and refined his talent at Texas Tech, performing small gigs in the bars and clubs of Lubbock, where so many music legends got their start. Pat Green has recorded 10 albums, been nominated for a Grammy Award and filled concert halls all over the country. Fifteen of his songs have made it to the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
Tickets are on sale through The Grand 1894 Opera House website. You might also consider becoming a Bowl for Kids’ Sake sponsor, to make an even more significant contribution to the future of Galveston County children through Gulf Coast Big Brothers Big Sisters. Numerous sponsorship levels are available, and sponsors will receive tickets to the concert. Major donors will receive invitations to a special “Meet and Greet” with Pat Green after the concert.
You’ll love Pat Green. You’ll love helping children through Bowl for Kids’ Sake. Like I said, it’s a win-win!
