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.

It’s easy and it’s fun! Plus, NO FEES!

We ask that all individual fundraisers raise a minimum of $50 and all teams raise a minimum of $500 to cover bowling games and shoes, but all participants are encouraged to do their best! 100% of every dollar brought in goes directly to the children in the BBBS program!

1 – Start a team or go solo

Set up your own fundraising page, or create a team. Teams are formed with five – six members. Consider creating a team with family, friends, co-workers, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, or support a team as a business.

2 – Start spreading the word

Most bowlers raise about $100, but many people raise well 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 of South Central Indiana.

3 – Start fundraising

Share your fundraising goal with friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, even your book club to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Indiana. Share on social media, in an email, text or by word of mouth!

4 – Let’s bowl

After you have secured your goal, it’s time to have fun! Select the date and time you’d like to bowl, then show up and you’ll receive two hours of bowling + shoes and a fun time at Classic Bowling Lanes in Bloomington, IN.

5 – Change lives
