A few hours of bowling can change a life! Bowl For Kids’ Sake is a fun and easy way for you and your company, friends, and family to support the life-changing work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine. Form teams at work, in your neighborhood, schools and service clubs, raise pledges, and then join one of nearly 20 events held each year in Penobscot, Midcoast and Kennebec Valley. Businesses are invited to support the event by being an event or lane sponsor. All money raised locally, stays locally, making a BIG impact on the lives of children in your community.
Bowl For Kids’ Sake, the agency’s largest fundraising event, raises over $200,000 in support of 1-to-1 mentoring programs provided at no cost to children in Kennebec, Knox, Lincoln, Penobscot, Somerset and Waldo counties. Funding from the events provides one-third of the agency’s annual operating budget. Each match costs about $1,000, which pays for careful screening and thorough training of all mentors and volunteers, supplies for activity bins and healthy snacks at all school-based programs and professional staff who provide continuous support to each match.
