When Is Bowl For Kids’ Sake?

Big Brothers Big Sisters holds BFKS annually every Spring. Our next Bowl For Kids’ Sake will take place on May 8th and 9th of 2020 at Lilac Lanes (3-5pm, 6-8 pm both nights).

How can I participate in BFKS?

If you like bowling and supporting kids in the community of Spokane, gather your team and start fundraising. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is super easy and fun! Register your team with us and recruit as many people as possible to be on your team or donate!

Team Captains recruit team members (minimum 5 per team) and help Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Northwest facilitate the BFKS Campaign within the team. Ask your coworkers, clients, friends, and family to join your team to fundraise. Corporate sponsorships are also available (details below).

Once your team is registered with us, fundraising can begin! Company teams can include friends and family who don’t work within the company. Team members are asked to raise/donate at least $100 per bowler, for BBBS by asking friends, family, and businesses for donations or by donating themselves.

At the end of the campaign and fundraising, a celebratory bowling party will be held in May for all teams who helped fundraise. Enjoy bowling, pizza, soda, raffles, a photo-booth by Hi 5 Orthodontics, a 90’s themed team costume contest (details below), a special edition Bowl for Kids’ Sake t-shirt and lots of fun!

Money raised from BFKS helps to match kids on the waiting list to Bigs and change their life for the better, forever through Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs.

Paper Bowling Pin slips are available to sell to raise more money for your team’s donation to BBBS. Sell them to customers and staff, then post them at your location to showcase donors. They can also be sold at any fundraising event you would like: car washes, bake sales, yard sales etc. This can supplement your team donation!
