Event Information

Bowl for Kids' Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters largest fundraiser. 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 years theme is: LIGHTS...CAMERA...BOWL!

Dress up as your favorite movie character on the night you bowl to win prizes! Teams that raise $500 or more before their bowling night get to enjoy a pizza and pitcher of their choice!


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. Registration fees are listed below.
  2. Start fundraising. Most bowlers raise about $170 on their own, however many teams raise over $1,000 collectively. 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 towards supporting children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters in Dane County.
  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), a Bowl for Kids' Sake t-shirt, and the chance 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.
