Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bowl For Kids’ Sake Kick Off – Thursday, 2/16 @ 6pm

Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to invite you to start something BIG by participating in its largest annual fundraiser: Bowl for Kids’ Sake. Each year, thousands of volunteers across Northeast Indiana and South-central Michigan come together to support Big Brothers Big Sisters in its mission to help at-risk children through professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships. Not a bowler? No worries! This campaign isn’t about bowling … it’s about the kids! 100% of the funds raised go directly towards helping match local children in need with a caring adult mentor. And this year we’re having a Luau at the Lanes – while it’s cold outside… it will be hot-hot-hot inside! Break out the shorts and tanks and get ready to show off your Big Kahuna style!

The concept is simple. Big Brothers Big Sisters is looking for “Team Captains” to get themselves and four other friends, family members or co-workers to form a team consisting of five total members. The Team Captain will work with Big Brothers Big Sisters to reserve a preferred date/time to bowl, encourage team members to raise pledges and then show up on the bowling celebration date chosen to enjoy two hours of bowling with rentals, concessions and the chance to win some amazing door prizes – all free! Each team member is encouraged to raise at least $100 in pledges, and incentive prizes will be awarded to those that raise more. Depending on the amount raised, these incentive prizes range from T-shirts, Old National Visa Gift Cards, 24” Vizio TV, PowerBeats Wireless by Dre to a YETI Roadie and a Grand Prize package featuring a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Package!
