Event Information

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ largest national fundraiser, raising over $20 million annually for children in need across the country. Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of the money you raise goes directly to support children in your community.

Event Theme = SPORTS! 
Get ready for a battle of the wits with sports-themed and general trivia during bowling! High school, collegiate, local, or professional sports attire is encouraged! Wear your favorite sports team hat, jersey, t-shirt, etc. for a chance to win a prize for the most creative and festive!  


Bowl with us on Friday, April 22 at Northway Lanes
7pm — Regular Bowling
8pm — Cosmic Bowling (Various lighting effects/show will occur.)
Pizza and pop included for all bowlers.

GE Aviation Teams bowl on Saturday, May 14 starting at 6pm
Sherman Bowling Center

Additional locations/dates may be added — "virtual" teams may choose to bowl on their own, see below for details.

  1. START A TEAM and GET REGISTERED: The team captain can register your team, and set up both your team fundraising page and their own. Each bowler can join the team when they register, and everyone gets their own fundraising page as well. The registration fee is $25 per bowler. Contact us if you need help getting registered. You can also register as a "virtual" bowler to skip the fee and start your fundraising page without joining our bowling event (see below for more details).
  2. RAISE MONEY: All bowlers raising at least $75 will get a t-shirt; raise $100 or more and get a special prize! Can you raise $500? Can your team raise over $1000? Donors can give to you or your team online by going to your fundraising page, or you can collect cash or checks. Be sure to mail in offline donations right away to get online credit! 
  3. BE QUICK - WIN THE EARLY BIRD: All teams raising $500 or more online by 04/8/2022 will be placed in a drawing to win a prize!
  4. BE THE ULTIMATE DEFENDER: Be the top fundraising team online by 04/22/2022 to get your name on the top of the ULTIMATE DEFENDER OF POTENTIAL trophy — and keep it for the year!
  5. BOWL: Celebrate your success! Join us on April 22 and receive two free games of bowling (shoes and ball rental included), plus pizza and pop, auctions, raffles, prizes and fun!
  6. CAN'T JOIN US ON APRIL 22? No problem! Register as virtual bowlers, and plan your own bowling event. You'll skip the registration fee, but will be responsible for your own game, food, and rental costs. Let us know when and where you plan to bowl so a representative of BBBSL can bring your team some Bowl for Kids' Sake fun! And, you are still eligible for Early Bird and Ultimate Defender prizes!
