The ITW Labels Gardner, Kansas plant selected the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City (BBBSKC) organization to support for charitable giving this year. Employees raised money for BBBSKC’s largest event of the year, Summer Bowl for Kids’ Sake. This event raises over $600,000, annually, for at-risk youth in the Kansas City area.
ITW Labels was represented at the event by THREE bowling teams! The Activities Team held multiple onsite fundraising events throughout the year to support this event including: chili cook-off, popcorn bar, March Madness bracket, bake sale, penny wars, and a charitable luncheon. Altogether $4,462 was raised and donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.
The bowling team participants included: *Bob Lokaphone, Lisa Haney, Jody Kurtz, Fe Yord, Karen Madison, Amber Parks, Lee Parks, Robert Ottens, Alice Romi, Richard Boone, Melissa Smith, Katie Smith, Chris Delgado, and Dezerae Curran*. Please join me in congratulating everyone for their hard work and generous contributions to local youth.
