Big Brothers Big Sisters x Altek

Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays
Coplay, PA 

We had the opportunity to host another annual event and donate to powerful, local nonprofits 

Congratulations!

One of the two non-profits who attended Altek’s customer appreciation clay shoot this year was Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley. Everyone was given the opportunity to donate to the non-profits in exchange for tickets to be later used towards raffle baskets. Thanks to each guest who attended, Altek was able to match and present Susan Bartels with a check for $1,500!

Since 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America has been matching adults (Big’s) with youth (Little’s) to mentor and encourage each to reach their fullest potential. Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley became part of this journey in 1971 to help local youth in the surrounding area. Their mission statement is to “Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth”.

BBBSLV has had the following impacts on the respective Lehigh Valley youth:

  • 99% maintained or improved their educational expectations
  • 96% maintained or decreased engagement in bullying behaviors
  • 92% maintained or improved symptoms associated with depression
  • 90% maintained or improved their family connectedness

Altek had the privilege of hosting another annual Customer Appreciation Clay Shoot Event at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays. Some of these customers consisted of IVC Wealth Advisors, Colorcon, Univest Bank, Falcon Educational Services, and Bethlehem Shared. What an honor it is to work with so many great local companies. We also appreciate our incredible sponsors – Great America, Kyocera, Canon, DLL Financial Solutions, Xerox, NetCarrier, and ACDI Inc.

The shooters had the chance to earn tickets after making a donation to one of the non-profits that had also attended the event. These tickets could be used towards raffle baskets, made up of goods by some of Altek’s customers. This included gas card & car wash items from Bergey’s, chocolates from Asher’s Chocolates, cigars and promo from Cigars International, liquor from Triple Sun Distillery, and wine and cheese from Landis Supermarket, a snack basket from Moyer Specialty Foods, and utility backpack & swag from Altek.

An overall great day on the clay course – enjoying good food while raising money for two amazing local non-profits, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Keystone Opportunity Center, and earning great prizes. Altek hopes to host this customer appreciation event for many years to come!
