“I can’t rescue a hundred kids, but I can make a difference in the life of one,” said Schlatter, 67, a graphic design consultant who for several years ran Schlatter Design in Battle Creek.
Schlatter is busily helping to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Calhoun County through its Bowl for Kids’ Sake event this month.
A lot of money.
Schlatter and his “little brother,” David Smith, a 16-year-old student at Battle Creek Central High School, hope to get pledges worth $1,000.
The double event April 21 will be at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. at M-66 Bowl, 19794 N.E. Capital Ave. The two fundraisers are among 15 Bowl for Kids’ Sake events that Big Brothers Big Sisters will hold this spring throughout the organization’s five-county region. It’s one of the agency’s biggest annual activities.
