Thanks to people like YOU who believe in supporting good causes that create strong, healthy communities for our children, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been able to provide valuable mentoring programs for over 400 children and youth in Saint John, Kings and Charlotte Counties!
Bowl for Kids Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters' most important fundraising event of the year! Your contribution allows us to continue to support existing matches and grow our programs by matching more children. This event allows us to raise the funds needed to recruit, screen and train volunteer mentors and supervise these matches according to our National Standards.
Bowl for Kids Sake is also a great way for a group of adult supporters to have a lot of fun!Get together with your friends, family, and co-workers and have a fun time bowling in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs in your community. Your support of this event will help to ensure that we are effectively serving our present youth clients and will enable us to expand our reach into the communities we serve.
