Big Brothers Big Sisters – 2018 Bowl For Kids’ Sake Kick Off Party

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 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. This year we will be saddling up with our cowboy boots for Western Bowl!

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 register with Big Brothers Big Sisters to reserve their preferred date/time to bowl, encourage team members to raise pledges and then show up on the bowling date chosen to celebrate and 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, Roku sticks, Amazon Dots, HD Fire Tablets, UE Wonderboom Wireless Speakers and a Grand Prize package featuring a trip to Orlando Florida for two!
