About Bowl for Kids' Sake
Over 40 years, Bowl for Kids' Sake has supported Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies throughout the country, serving as our premier fundraising Thank You party. After a month of raising awareness and funds, our local agencies thank their volunteers with a Bowl for Kids' Sake party at their local bowling center.
Upwards of $20 million is raised, nationwide, through this effort, along with the hopes and aspirations of children who deserve an opportunity for a better future. Because of Bowl for Kids' Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be gained and improved outlooks on life can be started.
Now's your chance to be a part of the fun and begin impacting children's lives right in your community. Sign up today and tell your family and friends. Be a fundraiser. Be a donor. Be a bowler.
How to Get Involved
Step 1: Identify your team captain who will register your team. The other four team members will then register under the team name.
Step 2: Register your team by visiting http://www.bbbsnefl.org/bowling , follow the simple instructions and select your fundraising goal. We ask that each person raise a minimum of $120 ($600 per team), but some individuals have raised as much as $2,500.
Step 3: Each team member will set up their own fundraising webpage to send emails to their friends, family and co-workers for donations. You can also encourage them to form teams among themselves.
Corporate and individual sponsorships are available. Click here to download the sponsorship form.
Support Bowl for Kids' Sake
Bowl for Kids’ Sake is about having fun to help kids continue on a positive path. It is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ largest national fundraiser, raising over $20 million annually for children in need across the country. By supporting Bowl for Kids’ Sake, you help our BIG dream of transforming Northeast Florida through a “mentoring movement” that brings a caring, supportive adult mentor into the life of every child who would benefit from having a Big Brother Big Sister.
Why Get Involved
We believe that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters live in single-parent and low-income families or households where a parent is incarcerated. Mentoring is a proven strategy that changes the way our children grow up by building attitudes and behaviors needed to stay in school, succeeding academically and creating promising futures. As we continue to impact more children in a positive and focused manner, we will improve schools, neighborhoods and our entire community.
