WHAT IS BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE?
Bowl For Kids' Sake (BFKS) is the largest fundraising event of the year for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester. This year, with your help, we hope to raise $65,000! 100% of your donation for this event goes directly to our programs providing one-to-one mentoring for children facing adversity in the Greater Manchester and Greater Concord communities.
Partnering with with Big Brothers Big Sisters through Bowl For Kids Sake makes a positive, long-lasting impact on children right here in your community. Whether you start a team, become a corporate sponsor, or make a donation your efforts ensure that more children can experience having a mentor who will help them achieve greater success in life and to make good choices both now and in the future. We hope that you will join with us as together we start youth on the path to fulfilling their potential and succeeding in school and life!
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Start a team on the firstgiving site with up to 5 other people and then start raising pledges for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester. Each person is asked to raise at least $50; people that raise over $100 are entered into other raffles for great prizes. By using the facebook interface and/or sending emails to friends, family and colleagues we make it simple to make a difference in the life of a child.
WHAT IF BOWLING ISN'T MY THING BUT HELPING CHILDREN IS?
You can make a donation to someone else's team or start a page yourself and ask people to support you NOT to bowl. Remember, Bowl For Kids Sake is about having fun to help kids--if bowling isn't your thing, we understand; you can still participate and help children become successful adults!
