On Saturday, March 1st both Austin and Dallas RO offices celebrated their fundraising efforts for Big Brothers Big Sisters with area wide bowling parties!  Rogers-O’Brien had 5 teams between the two offices and together we raised over $6,200!

Caleb Holcom and his Big, Mike did the opening ceremonies at Plano Super Bowl and Caleb threw out the first bowl. Themes for the night were the “90s” and “Cowboys vs. Zombies”.  There was a lot of fun and camaraderie shared by both groups of bowlers.
