BBBS invites public to ‘Bowl for Kids’ Sake’

Big Brothers Big Sisters invites the public to participate in its largest annual fund-raiser, Bowl for Kids’ Sake, set for Sunday, March 11.

All funds raised will go directly toward helping match Huntington County children in need with a caring adult mentor. This year, the theme of the event is “Western Bowl.”

The concept of the event is simple. Big Brothers Big Sisters is looking for “team captains” to get themselves and four other friends, family members or co-workers to form a team consisting of five total members. The team captain will register with Big Brothers Big Sisters to reserve their March 11 date with their preferred time to bowl, encourage team members to raise pledges and then show up on March 11 at their chosen time to participate in two hours of bowling with free rentals and concessions and the chance to win door prizes.

Each team member is encouraged to raise at least $100 in pledges, and incentive prizes will be awarded to those that raise more.

Depending on the amount raised, these incentive prizes range from T-shirts, Roku sticks, Amazon Dots, HD Fire Tablets, UE Wonderboom Wireless Speakers and a grand prize package featuring a trip to Orlando, FL for two.

For more information, to register a team or view the 2018 Bowl for Kids’ Sake schedule, contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at 456-1600 or visit the organization online at

Bowling times on March 11 are noon to 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
