Many of the matches we will make this year are made possible through funding raised from this event. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a great opportunity for you, family, friends, companies, churches and civic groups –even our own BIGS & LITTLES – to get in the game all while raising money for a worthy cause!
Bowl for Kid’s Sake is tons of fun! The event features 2 hours of bowling, shoe rental, door prizes and refreshments - all at no cost!! All you have to do is register your team, ask your teammates to collect pledges ($100 per bowler is encouraged – think about it… it’s as easy as asking 10 friends for just $10!) and come out on your chosen bowling date and time to party! All participants who raise pledges have the opportunity to win some really great prizes! From gift cards to iPads and a chance to win the Grand Prize package: A home theater gaming system, valued at more than $1,500!!!
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the nation’s leader in one-to-one mentoring, and Bowl for Kids’ Sake will help the agency continue its mission of providing positive adult role models to children in need. 100% of all funds raised will go to support matches right where you live – benefiting your community! Big Brothers Big Sisters provides mentors to children – we are making better futures and changing lives! Last year, we raised over $200,000 just through Bowl for Kids’ Sake alone. This year, we can do even better and help more kids in need… but we can’t do it alone - We need your help! It’s fun. It’s easy. And it makes a BIG difference! Get in the Game!
