|Incoming CEO Pam Iorio Attends Local Bowl For Kids’ Sake, Helps Tampa Agency Celebrate 50th Anniversary|
Former mayor of Tampa and newly named CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (March 31), Pam Iorio, joined a number of local city government notables at Tampa’s 33rdBowl For Kids’ Sake event recently. Along with Police Chief Jane Castor and some representatives from the sheriff’s office and the fire department, Iorio helped Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay celebrate the agency’s 50thanniversary of providing mentors for children in the Tampa Bay area.
The “Annual Chiefs’ Challenge Bowl For Kids’ Sake” fundraiser is held each year and chiefs and representatives from fire-rescue and area law enforcement departments and offices enter into a friendly competition to raise some money
“Everyone’s out for a good time but also significant money for something that couldn’t be a better cause,” Iorio said. “You know, I believe in changing the world one person at a time, that’s how you make the world a better place, and to me that’s what Big Brothers Big Sisters is all about.”
As Big Brothers Big Sisters’ signature fundraiser, agencies around the country push for donation drives from Bowl For Kids’ Sake teams around their communities to help support and contribute to Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies. The money raised provides children professionally supported, one-to-one long-term mentoring focused on changing their lives for the better, forever.
“I am so honored to be a part of this great organization,” Iorio said. “What a great day for me to be here. I’ll have to brush up on my bowling!”
