Participating is Easy! Just Follow These Steps.

1) Form a team:  Completing the registration form begins the process.  Teams can be comprised of 4 to 6 bowlers.  You don't have to have your complete team compiled before registering.  Registering simply confirms your team reservation and allows you to begin the pledge process.  We do ask that if you register a team, you agree to a team goal of $300.00 in pledges/donations.

The registration form will ask you to select your "shift time".  This is the time your team will be bowling.  Lanes are limited for each shift, so it is vital that you get your registration completed and to BBBS as soon as possible.

The $300.00 goal is for your team NOT for each individual bowler.  Teams can raise funds however they want to achieve the goal.  We have a wonderful individual or team fundraising page that can be created which allows you to email family and friends to ask for support.  Your completed team commitment entitles you to: bowling, shoes, food, prizes and the official BFKS T-Shirt!

2) Set up a fundraising page.  That's right, you can take a few simple steps to set up your own fundraising page which allows you to set your goal, email friends and watch as the dollars of support come in!!!  

3) Take the Challenge:  each shift will award a prize to the top team or individual fundraiser.  We encourage teams to engage others to participate by issuing a "friendly" challenge.  Challenges can be issued to other organizations, schools, departments, and/or friends and family.  A traveling trophy can be created and presented at the shift.  Full details of the shift prizes will be provided to each team once a completed registration is received.

4)  Create and implement your plan:  there are a number of strategies to raise funds for the Bowl for Kids' Sake

  1. Click the mouse and see the dollars come in! BBBS will set up a custom fundraising web page for your team. Email your network and watch as your family, friends, co-workers and others support your community service! 
  2. Host a fundraising event at your workplace, club, church, fraternity or sorority. You are representing a larger group, so engage them in your efforts.
  3. Other ideas include donation jars, bake sale, pot luck, raffle, silent auction, casual for a cause, car wash or something fun that everyone will enjoy. 

5) Start BOWLING:  After you have secured your pledges, it's time to have fun!  You'll receive one free game of bowling all inclusive, food, drinks, chances to win door prizes and a souvenir team photo.
