On Saturday, June 3, Michels Corporation held their annual employee golf outing at The Golf Club at Camelot. As part of their event, Sue Goral and LeAnne Dietrich sold raffle tickets for a 50/50 raffle. The winner took home $1003 and $1002 was donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Fond du Lac County. “I was blown away by the amount they made from their 50/50 raffle,” said Tammy Young, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters.  “We were told it was their biggest 50/50 raffle ever!  The Michels employees made a BIG difference in the life of a child!”

BBBS assists children with social, emotional and character development through one-to-one mentoring relationships with caring adults.  Children in the program come from a wide variety of backgrounds, many coming from single parent households, living at or below poverty level.  BBBS matches children with a Big Brother, Sister, Couple or Family in a community or school based program.  Children aged six through 13 can enroll in the program through a parent or guardian referral.  Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license for the community-based program, 16 years old for the school-based program.  For more information about the program or to volunteer, call 920-922-8200 or visit www.bbbsfdl.org.
