Event Info:

Bowl for Kids' Sake is the largest national fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters, raising over $20 million annually. Because of Bowl for Kids' Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be matched up, more friendships can be created and more young lives can be transformed.

Bowl for Kids' Sake is a fun and easy way to positively impact a child. 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.

2) Start securing donations. Most bowlers raise about $175, but many participants raise over $1,000. What impact will you make?.

The best part is that all event expenses are underwritten by our corporate sponsors. As a result, 100% of the funds raised by bowlers directly support 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 two free games of bowling (shoe and ball rental included!), a Bowl for Kids' Sake t-shirt, food, drinks, and chances to win great prizes!

So what are you waiting for? Start Something today! Partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh 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 healthy choices. It starts a child on the path to fulfilling their potential and succeeding in school and life. If you have any questions or need help, please contact Rose C. Kugel, Program & Development Associate, at rkugel@bbbspgh.org or 412.204.1216.
