Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County has their signature Bowling for Kids Sake event in March, which is a community bowl-a-thon party to benefit at-risk children in our community. Proceeds from the event support their valuable mentoring programs. Staff member, Lindy Schasiepen says this year they are putting on a pre-bowling event called the Painted Pin Showcase.
Many local artists found out about the pins and wanted one to decorate. Schasiepen says Bear River High School art teacher, Elizabeth Jens also wanted some bowling pins for her students to decorate….
