  • This May, we’re changing things up and introducing THE HUNT: Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2021! We’re inviting companies, Bigs, and community members to create a team and join us for a 30-day city-wide Scavenger Hunt with challenges, prizes, friendly competition, and fundraising for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County.
  • How's it gonna work? It's simple. Each item on The Hunt is assigned a different point value, based on how easy (or not!) it is to find or create. Once you find it? Submit a photo or video to earn points for your team. Items will incorporate bowling, Madison landmarks, supporting local businesses, and more! For some, it’s as easy as finding a certain spot in town. Others might be trickier, like recreating a photo from one of our Matches. What we can promise is that The Hunt will use your creativity, ingenuity, and sense of humor!
  • Each team can decide how to do The Hunt, whether you work together to complete items or divide them up. This flexibility will ensure that everyone can get involved, regardless of who’s on your team or what the public health restrictions are. Hunting with your family? Head out together to find your items! Hunting with co-workers? Have a Zoom to discuss who wants to take on each item, and get going on your own! There’s no wrong way to do it.
  • The Hunt will culminate in a fun (and socially distant!) outdoor celebration event. We’ll have goodies for all, plus some fabulous prizes for our top point-getters. Participants can drive through to get their prizes, or bring a picnic and enjoy a night out with lawn bowling and other fun games and activities. Plus, you’ll have the warm fuzzies knowing you’re giving back to a great cause. Win-win.

    Time For Team-Building

    THE HUNT is a great opportunity for team-building and bonding! Whether it is your friends, colleagues or family you will enjoy a unique and memorable experience together. Create a team or as many 4-5 person teams as you wish. We can even set up a friendly fundraising competition between teams. Contact us at 608-661-5437 ext. 111 for more information.

    Your Support Makes a Difference

    There is no cost for children (Littles) to participate in our program. Big Brothers Big Sisters depends on donations raised at this event to accelerate our growth and shorten a Little's wait time, recruit new Bigs to mentor our waiting Littles, and provide the professional support needed to create life-long relationships.

    Thanks to our Generous Sponsors
