Bowl For Kids' Sake 2024


Bowl For Kids' Sake (BFKS) has been one of the longest running fundraisers for Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County (BBBS).  

Our goal is to raise funds for BBBS mentoring programs that impact hundreds of kids in McHenry County. Each individual has a minimum goal of $75 which gets you to your bowling time slot, however raising more than the minimum has lasting, impactful effects on children's lives throughout our community. 

This event is family friendly! One family member can register the entire group and are asked to set a minimum fundraising goal of $175 in total*. 

*The $175 Family fundraising goal is determined for 2 adults and 2 children. For every additional child, we ask you to bump up the goal another $25 to help cover the costs of the event itself.
