Big Brothers Big Sisters Celebrates Bowl for Kids' Sake Season
Chances are, you’re familiar with Bowl for Kids’ Sake, Big Brothers Big Sisters' signature fundraising event. Each year, over 125,000 people across the country will spend a few hours at their local bowling center to help Big Brothers Big Sisters raise the funds needed to create life-changing match relationships.
On March 5, 2013, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago to launch the 2013 National Bowl for Kids' Sake season with a special celebration at Chicago's 10Pin Bowing. We were not going to let nine inches of snow stop us from celebrating the impact Bowl for Kids’ Sake has across the country! Check out the Flickr gallery below to see photos from the event and stay tuned to our YouTube channel to catch a video from the event.

Big Brothers Big Sisters also proudly introduces a new partnership with OnTheBallBowling.com, which designed and made the first collectible Bowl for Kids’ Sake bowling ball available for sale. From now until the end of the year, whenever you make a purchase through OnTheBallBowling.com, using the code BFKS, 10% of your pre-tax amount will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
In 2012, Bowl for Kids’ Sake was the largest athletic fundraiser of any youth-serving organization. With your help, we can make sure our staff members have the resources necessary to carefully match more volunteers and children in long-term, life-changing mentoring relationships.
