Bowl For Kids' Sake

Bowl For Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northcentral’s signature fundraiser. Each year hundreds of people across Northcentral Wisconsin 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 businesses 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.

What’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake?
Bowl for Kids’ Sake is an annual event benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northcentral Wisconsin. All funds remain in the community and keep our agency’s programming available to the hundreds of local children who need the help of a mentor relationship. Match costs include thorough background checks, enrollment interviews, recruitment of mentors and providing professional, consistent match support.

Join us for BIG Bowl!  During these crazy times of COVID-19 we will be hosting Big Bowl virtually during the entire month of May.  Register your team to join us for exciting month-long activities that could win you and your team some great prizes during our weekly challenges!  With each registration your team will receive a bowling set, voucher for team bowling at your favorite bowling alley (Dale’s Weston Lanes, Les & Jim’s Lincoln Lanes, or Paper City Lanes), alley cash, and other great prizes.  We all know that it’s really not about the bowling, but about the kids.  With over 130 children on our waitlist, the funds raised during Big Bowl will stay local to help match these children with a positive adult role model.  Together, we are all Defenders of Potential.
