Bowl for Kids' Sake 2020
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria and Area
Welcome to Bowl for Kids' Sake - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria's signature fundraising event! For 8 years in a row, over 150 business and community participants form teams, collect pledges, and then go head-to-head in a spirited bowling competition; complete with prizes, raffles, and pizza! For our 8th Annual Bowling Event we decided hey - this year, let's raise $80,000! See below for fundraising incentives.
Why raise $80,000?
Potential is everywhere - and we need to ignite it, protect it and defend it at all costs. Proceeds from Bowl for Kids' Sake fund our local youth mentoring programs which create and support meaningful mentoring relationships for young people in our communities. Our organization serves just over 600 children and youth per year, but we still have a whopping 132 children on our wait list - all of which are facing multiple adversities and life struggles. That's not good enough for us. In order to match our wait list, we need more resources. Each match costs roughly $1200 per year to support, and most matches last longer than the 1 year commitment. Our programs change children's lives - why should they have to wait?
When and where is Bowl for Kids' Sake happening?
April 24th - 26th, 2020 at Langford Lanes in the Westshore
