Bowl for Kids' Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Arizona’s largest annual fundraiser and volunteer recruitment campaign; engaging over 750 people annually and raising over $100,000 each year for 39th years in support of one-to-one mentoring relationship that ignite the power, promise and potential of our community’s youth.


It’s not about Bowling, it’s about defending the potential of our youth and clearing the path to their biggest possible future!


How does bowling help kids?

Bowling helps our community’s youth in two BIG ways.  First, each bowler becomes an advocate for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Arizona.  As each fundraising bowler shares the opportunity to support with their network, they are also spreading awareness of our mission.  This often guides potential volunteers to our programs and helps us create new matches for the 180 children waiting for a Big right now.

Second, ALL funds raised stay in our community and will be used to build and professionally support over 600 one-to-one mentoring relationships this year through volunteer recruitment, volunteer screening, one-to-one staff support for each match, parent/guardian and volunteer orientations, parent/guardian and volunteer trainings, monthly free or reduced rate Match outing and activities and quarterly family outings and activity opportunities!
