Bowl for Kids Sake is a FUN way to make an impact on the lives of children and youth right here in Pictou County!

fun event where children, families, co-workers, businesses and the community come together to raise funds and celebrate the importance of mentoring.  Form a team, collect pledges and bowl is that simple!

This year we are coming together (virtually) to celebrate our 40th Anniversary in Pictou County - and we are doing it in STYLE! Get dressed to the nines and join in our online costume contest!

Stay tuned on May 23rd for special messages from honorary chairs Bob Curley and Stacey Murphy! 

Your Task: Raise money to ignite the full potential of Pictou County kids!

Impact: When a child has a mentor, the odds they will be emotionally, socially & physically healthy increases dramatically…and when we have healthy young people in our communities, everyone benefits. #BiggerTogether #IgnitePotential

Creating a new mentoring match costs roughly $1200. If everyone on your team raises $150, your team could raise more than half the cost of a match. Aim for the $250 level, and you could be Matchmakers!

Since money invested in BBBS programs generates an average social return on investment of $23 for every dollar invested, the money you raise will have huge impact in our community.

We look forward to celebrating your fundraising success on Bowl for Kids Sake online May 23rd!

Dust off your dresses and suites and help us celebrate our 40th anniversary with us in STYLE for our Black Tie Affair!
