Bowling Parties Aim to Boost Big Brothers Big Sisters

Posted By on May 19, 2017

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona is hosting their Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser on Saturday, June 10 with the goal of raising over $100,000.

The fundraiser comprises two Glow Bowl community bowling parties, one taking place at AMF Christown Lanes from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the other from 6 to 8 p.m. at AMF Tempe Village Lanes.

“Our Bigs, Littles, families, staff and supporters look forward to Bowl for Kids’ Sake every year,” said the group’s senior director of development, Jessica Whitney. “It’s a fun way for anyone to show support for youth in our community by participating in this event as a bowler, team captain, or sponsor.”

The event is Big Bothers Big Sisters’ largest national fundraiser, raising more than $10 million annually for youth mentorship programs.

Last year, 300 people participated in the Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraisers, which include bowling, pizza, games and prizes.

“The success of this event relies on community participation. We know not everyone can volunteer as a Big Brother or Big Sister to a child, yet by participating in this event, anyone can make a difference and help put a child on the path to success,” said Whitney.

Community members are encouraged to participate by becoming team captains and recruiting friends and family members to bowl with them, or by joining another bowler’s team. Bowlers are encouraged to donate or raise a minimum of $120.
