Event Information

Bowl for Kids' Sake is one of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Minnesota's largest fundraisers, raising over $80,000 for local youth last year. Because of Bowl for Kids' Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be created, and brighter futures are made possible.


Bowl for Kids' Sake is a fun and easy way to positively impact a child's life. Just follow the simple steps below:

  1. Start a team. Teams are usually formed with five or six members. Consider creating a team with family, friends, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, or co-workers.
  2. Start securing sponsorship. Most bowlers raise about $170, but many people raise over $1,000. What impact do you want to have? The best part is that all of the event expenses are underwritten by our corporate sponsors. That means 100% of the money raised by bowlers goes directly toward supporting children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters in your community.
  3. Start bowling. After you have secured your sponsorships, it's time to have fun! You'll receive a free hour of bowling (shoe and ball rental included!) at the best MN-themed bowling party of the year. Depending on how much you raise, you'll receive new BBBS swag items, like an exclusive 2020 Bowl for Kids' Sake t-shirt. Don't forget food, drinks, and chances to win door prizes! 

So what are you waiting for? Start your team today! Partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters through Bowl for Kids' Sake makes a positive, long-lasting impact on children in your community. Our mentoring works. It works to help broaden children's perspectives and help them learn how to make good choices. It starts a child on the path to fulfilling their potential and succeeding in school and life.
