Bowl for Kids Sake

Bowl for Kids Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ premier fun-raising event where people like you get together with friends, family, and co-workers and have a fun time bowling in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs in your community.

Your contribution allows us to continue to support existing matches and grow our programs by matching more children. This event allows us to raise funds for programs and services for youth in Greater Saint John, Sussex and Charlotte County.  It’s also a great way for a group of adult supporters to have a lot of fun!

So get together with your friends, family, or co-workers and have a fun time bowling in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs in your community!

This year’s theme is “Wild West” so dust off your favorite Stetson hat, pull on your cowboy boots and join a whole bunch of other buckaroos at the bowling alley in “Dodge City”! Organize your team of 4 to 6 bowlers, start your fundraising and join us for a whole lot of fun!

  • Teams consist of 4 to 6 buckaroos
  • Choose a 90-minute bowling time
  • Wear your favorite Levi’s, your best denim or flannel button-down shirt, and don’t forget your bandana! and
  • Meet us at the O.K. Corral for a bowling showdown! (Sorry, horses must be tied up outside the bowling alley :))!
  • Have a great time in the ole Wild West!
  • Trivia and prizes!
  • Participants must raise a minimum of $100 to be eligible for prizes!
