Karl Kandt currently serves part-time as manager of farming and ranch operations at K Ranch, LLC, in central Kansas. When Karl Eric Kandt is not overseeing activity on the ranch, he contributes time and money to a number of local charities, including the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Riley County (Kansas).
Led by executive director and north central regional director Jennifer Wilkins, the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Riley County has been serving local children for over a century. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Riley County presently assists about 2,600 pairs of mentors and mentees, yet there are still more than 50,000 local children in need who could benefit from a Big Brother Big Sister relationship.
One event the group regularly holds to raise awareness for its cause is the Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser, which brings together public groups and local businesses for a friendly competition while serving as a call to action. Over the years, Bowl for Kids’ Sake has served as the organization’s largest gathering of potential mentors and volunteers, as well as an effective source of charitable donations that allows the organization to fund operations.
