For 40 years, Bowl for Kids’ Sake has been a hallmark fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters, nationally. Each year half a million people gather across America to bowl and raise money for BBBS mentoring programs. Through this effort, $20 million is raised, nationwide!
What is BFKS?
Bowl for Kids’ Sake is made up of fundraising teams collecting donations and then celebrating their success by attending a local bowling party. Teams can be made from a collective of family and friends or businesses can create their own teams.
Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a great way for local businesses and individuals to give back to their community by supporting mentoring. Taking part in our local Bowl for Kids’ Sake is fun and only requires a little bit of effort to raise the money that is so important to the success of our local programs.
