Event Information

Bowl for Kids' Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters largest national fundraiser, raising over $20 million annually for children in need across the country. Because of Bowl for Kids' Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be created and improved outlooks on life can be started.


This year's theme is "Space Bowl", blast off will happen on Saturday, May 5th at Petro Bowl in Lake Charles.  Over 100 teams will show their out-of-this-world bowling skills while celebrating our mentoring mission in SWLA.  


We will have split-the-pot raffle tickets for sale each one-hour bowling session, numerous raffle prizes, food, fun and beer.  Along with our celebrity MC's, this year's Bowl For Kids' Sake will be FUN and FABULOUS for all who partake.  This is a family-friendly event, so bring the littles to share into the fun.  


Wear your best space-themed costume or team T-shirt and YOU could win a prize for best costume.  A photo booth will be available and thanks to our Photo Booth Sponsor AdSource, your photos will be projected onto digital billboards around town, fun for your friends and family to see.  


Top ten fundraisers will win prizes donated by Golden Nugget Lake Charles, so get to fundraising and you could be a winner.
