What better way to spend your Saturday, than to go bowling with a group of your friends at the local bowling alley. Imagine competing with your friends, winning prizes, meeting new people, and eating delicious refreshments, all while attending a community event that is raising money to help support a national organization for children. If you want to participant in an event like this, you’re in luck; the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization has an event just for you! The Bowl for Kids’ Sake event is on March 27th, where you can indulge in these activities.
Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is a successful non-profit organization that provides mentoring relationships for all children who need and want them. Children from the ages of 7-14, are paired with a “big” that matches their needs and fits the description of a friend that they are looking for. BBBS has proven to help provide children by creating brighter futures, maintaining positive behaviors in school and at home and also creating a stronger community.
Since BBBS is a non-profit organization, it is only funded by the donations that it receives. The more money that is raised at the Bowl for Kids’ Sake event, the more children that BBBS can help serve. Every donation that is given to this organization will help BBBS in continuing to provide children with a friend, a mentor and a chance to change their lives.
