About Bowl for Kids' Sake 2023

What is Bowl for Kids’ Sake?

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a fun, family-friendly event that raises money to support 1-to-1 mentoring programs for youth facing adversity in your community. It costs $2,000 to recruit, screen, train, and support a match between a Big and a Little. This is your chance to IGNITE POTENTIAL!

How does bowling help kids?

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is our longest running fundraising event, making it possible to support one to one mentoring relationships in McDonough and Warren Counties. Money raised is used to match Bigs and Littles, ensure child safety, fund healthy activities, and provide professional support to help build and sustain long-lasting relationships. Have fun bowling, while changing the lives of local youth!
