Each year, NimbleUser participates in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Rochester’s Bowl for Kids Sake fundraising event. The annual event is the organization’s largest national fundraiser of the year.
On Saturday, March 8th the Nimble crew put down their computers, ipads and Smartphones and picked up a bowling ball (Ok, we kept our Smartphones in our pocket the whole time. What can I say? We’re always connected to the cloud.) Collectively, we raised $2249, exceeding our team goal of raising $2000 for this great organization. Many thanks to all of the donors who supported our Nimble Bowlers!
