We're excited to announce that on Friday, January 24th 2020, Bluegrass Sotheby’s International Realty Charity Event will be hosting the Eighth Annual BGSIR Charity Event, Pins for Paws, at Southland Bowling Lanes.  The event has been such a huge success ($72,966 donated to charity!) the past seven years that we can’t wait to get started on making our eighth attempt at this better & hopefully a little bigger.  Just like last year, the entire facility is booked & have at least 40 teams again for a fun & challenging tournament. 


The most exciting aspect of this event each year is how the net proceeds are used.  As with the past six years, 50% of these net proceeds will automatically be donated to the Lexington Humane Society in the name of Brian Mattone.  The other 50% will be donated to the winning teams charity of choice!  Last year’s winners also designated their donation to the Lexington Humane Society in Brian’s name.  That makes seven year total charitable disbursements of $66,996 to LHS. Incredible!  Everyone that participates has a chance to make a difference for their respective charitable designee.


As with the past seven years, the 4 person teams will cost $250 each & details about the event will be announced soon.  The great thing is that each team will be guaranteed at least four games, will have a great Friday bowling, and get to see all of our friends!  Please email Riley Kirn at the address below if you want to go ahead & reserve your team now. This event is a great way to support Brian Mattone’s Legacy with the Lexington Humane Society as well as our local community.

Sponsorship Opportunities?
