CUMMING, Ga. — "Bowl for Kids" raised funds to support Mentor Me North Georgia, a local nonprofit organization that provides one-on-one mentoring relationships between volunteer adults and children. The 2014 event was held at the Stars and Strikes Family Entertainment Center.

About 100 bowlers, along with corporate sponsors, raised about $14,000, which will be used to match mentors with children.

"Bowl for Kids provides our supporters in the community an opportunity to meet and interact with some of our mentors and mentees," said Sylvia Cardona, executive director of Mentor Me North Georgia. "They see how they relate to each other and watch them having fun – that's part of what mentoring is about."

Mentor Me matches volunteer adults with children ages 6 to 17, who need and want mentors.

Children involved in the Forsyth County program have demonstrated improved self-confidence, self-esteem, academic performance and behavior.

For more information, contact Sylvia Cardona at 678-341-8028 or sylvia@mentormenorthga.org or visit www.mentormenorthga.org.
