Lil’ Mr. & Lil’ Miss Battle of Byron
Lil’ Mr. & Lil’ Miss BoB is our annual children’s fundraiser open to any child from ages 3 – 8 years old. Children collect pennies (votes) to become Lil’ Mr. or Lil’ Miss Battle of Byron. The child who collects most votes during the fundraising period wins the title.
This year we had 7 participants aging from 3-6 years. The total amount that was raised including each child’s sponsor was $1,269.87. Austin Yack (6 yrs) was announced the winner of Lil’ Mr. Battle of Byron 2013 and MaKenzie Smith (3yrs) was announced the winner of Lil’ Miss Battle of Byron 2013. We’d like to thank everyone who supported these young community volunteers with your votes. You may look forward to seeing them at upcoming Battle of Byron events and the Byron Christmas Parade.
