Join us as we celebrate All Things OHSU’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and everything they do for our kids and for our community. The Fifth Annual Bowling with Heart Bowl-a-Thon is Sunday, February 23rd — FUN for families, friends, colleagues, and you. Proudly presented by Big Al’s in partnership with Sophie’s Chapter of Friends of Doernbecher, Presenting Sponsor, Davidson Insurance and Diamond Sponsor, ZRT Laboratory!

Big Al’s had always supported OHSU’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital since Big Al’s Vancouver opened in 2006.

As a business — no, as a community asset — we opened our doors with the specific aim of supporting all things kids, mothers seeking respite from domestic abuse, and food banks where upwards of 40% of the recipients are under 12.

Our support of Doernbecher became incredibly, and scarily, personal for Big Al’s CEO Daniel & his wife Melissa and the Kirkwood family in 2013.

Meet Sophie.
Our Big Al’s Doernbecher Kid.
