Bowl for Kids' Sake

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ signature fundraiser that is held March through April in Oshkosh, Appleton and Waupaca locations. Each year hundreds of people in our community come together to have fun and raise money to support Big Brothers Big Sisters as we change how children grow up! Bowl for Kids’ Sake is the perfect way for individuals and companies to make an impact on our community – it only takes a little bit of effort to raise the money that is vital to our program’s success.

Each bowler is asked to raise a minimum of $50 as a “thank you” for your support and enthusiasm, Big Brothers Big Sisters hosts a celebratory party at our local bowling centers. No bowling expertise is required, only the willingness to share in our heartfelt and sincere thanks for helping us transform our community. You will receive two hours of free bowling and shoe rental, t-shirt, food and beverage, raffles, door prizes, and so much more!

Each Big/Little Match is asked to raise a minimum of $25 in pledges to participate in the event. If you bring family & friends, they will be asked to raise a minimum of $50.

This year’s theme is Strike a Pose!  Are you ready to give us your best selfie pose, bring props or use ours, pose a team or individual.  Get those creative thoughts going!  Can’t wait to see all the photos from each event.

Where does the money go?

Big Brothers Big Sisters depends on donations to conduct background checks on volunteers to ensure child safety; and provide ongoing support for children, families and volunteers to build and sustain long-lasting relationships.

Your role in this effort to help local children cannot be over stated: We need your help to raise community awareness of the challenges faced by local children and to ask for the financial support need to help change the trajectory of a child’s life.
