Graham and Swain County Independent Brand Partners held a Bowl for Kids’ Sake (BFKS) event for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina on Nov. 5, 2016. This was the first BFKS event for the Graham and Swain County branch, and it was a success!
The Neora team (one of eight at the event) was successful in using the online fundraising vehicle to gather support from other Independent Brand Partners. The funds raised at this event will help support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina’s new school mentoring program. Graham County started its program this fall.
Both counties are in a rural, mountainous area of North Carolina. A great portion of the area is part of a Cherokee reservation and Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The Brand Partners concentrated on recruiting business and civic teams in the area to great success!
Total donations for the BFKS event were $6,415. The Neora team raised $2,095! Great effort by all involved!
