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.

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 six members. Consider creating a team with family, friends, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, or co-workers.
  2. Start securing sponsorship. We ask that each bowler raise $100, 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 towards 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 bowling game (shoe and ball rental included!), a Bowl for Kids' Sake t-shirt, 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.
