Event Information

Bowl for Kids' Sake is an important fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota, raising over $40,000 annually for children in need in our community. 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.


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 formed with five or six members. Consider creating a team with family, friends, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, or co-workers.
  2. Start securing sponsorship. The minimum to raise is $50, but most bowlers raise about $100, and some 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 sponsors. That means 100% of the money raised by bowlers goes directly towards supporting children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters in our community.

  3. Start bowling. After you have secured your sponsorships, it's time to have fun! You'll receive two free games of bowling (shoe and ball rental included!) 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.
