-----IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS UPDATE!-----

To all of our Bowl for Kid’s Sake Bowlers, Sponsors, and Supporters:

BBBS is closely monitoring the Maine CDC guidelines with regards to recommendations about limiting inside social gatherings with 250 or more people. Our upcoming BFKS events, when they are at capacity, do not reach more than 50 people each hour, and at most 100 in-between each hourly bowling time.  With that said, we also respect any personal decisions about attending BFKS. We appreciate all our volunteers and fundraisers are doing to support local youth through BBBS. If you choose not to attend, you can send pledges with pledge sheets (checks payable to BBBSMM), to 66 Elm Street Camden, Maine, 04843.  You can also still register online as a virtual bowler and collect donations online just as you normally would, even if you choose not to attend.

This is a rapidly changing circumstance, and we will keep you informed if any decisions might affect Bowl For Kids' Sake. If you have questions, please contact us via email or phone (207-236-2227) or [email protected].

 

What is Bowl for Kids’ Sake?

Bowl For Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine's largest fundraiser. Each year hundreds of people come together to have fun and raise money to support Big Brothers Big Sisters as we work to help change kids' lives for the better, forever! 

Bowl For Kids’ Sake is the perfect way for individuals 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.

As a “thank you” for your support and enthusiasm, we host a celebratory party at your local bowling center. No bowling expertise is required, only the willingness to share in our heartfelt and sincere thanks for helping us transform our community. 

 


Where does the money go?

Big Brothers Big Sisters depends on donations to conduct background checks on volunteers to ensure child safety; and provide ongoing support for children, families and volunteers to build and sustain long-lasting relationships.

 We need your help to raise community awareness of the challenges faced by local children and to ask for the financial support need to help change the trajectory of a child’s life.
