Get Ready to Bowl for Kids' Sake!


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. Watch for 2019 Bowl for Kids' Sake dates!


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.
