Bowl for Kids Sake 2019 – “Star Wars”

Bowl for Kids Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters most important fundraising event of the year! Thanks to people like YOU who believe in supporting programs that create strong, healthy communities for our children, this event raises funds needed to connect over 400 youth with carefully selected mentors! We then nurture these life-changing relationships for children and youth facing adversity in Saint John, King’s and Charlotte Counties. Young people who have this support are more likely to do well in school, go on to successful careers, give back to their communities and live happier, healthier lives.

Bowl for Kids Sake is a great team building activity and a whole lot of fun! Get together with your friends, family, and/or co-workers, raise some funds through various fundraising options. Join us at the fully decorated bowling alley in costume (optional) and participate in theme-based activities designed to maximize the fun in this fun-raising event.

This year’s theme is “Star Wars”, so dust off your lightsaber, gather up your group of Jedi and awaken the force within to get to the best bowling event in the galaxy!
