Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine Bowl for Kids’ Sake

In addition to several of our employees serving in the “Big” role for a local child, over 100 Martin’s Point employees traded their footwear for bowling shoes and warmed up their arms in 2023 to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Southern Maine. Martin’s Point sponsored two Bowl for Kids’ Sake events at Bayside Bowl in Portland—in March and May—raising a total of more than $10,000 for this crucial community partner. These critical dollars support the recruitment, screening, and training of mentors, helping to establish supportive one-to-one relationships. Emily Hering, Communications and Events Manager for BBBS, emphasized, “This support helps guarantee every child has the opportunity to reach their brightest future.” At each event, participants divided into teams of six, donning costumes and encouraging friendly competition. Based on this year’s success, plans for repeat events in 2024 are already in place.

“Together, we’re not just knocking down pins—we’re building brighter futures.”
—Sydney Clifton, Organizational Development and Learning
