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, organization members, or co-workers.
  2. Start securing donations. The minimum to raise is $50 per bowler, but most bowlers raise about $100, and some 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 donations, it's time to have fun! You'll receive free 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.
