Bowl For Kids Sake - 2012

Sunday, March 04, 2012


Bowl For Kids' Sake is our annual bowling celebration for teams that have raised funds and awareness for our youth mentoring programs.  Join over 300 bowlers for the 2012 'Disco Bowl'!  It's time to get your 70's outfit and come join the party!  After weeks of fundraising our bowlers will be getting down to disco tunes, eating pizza and having a blast at Mustang Lanes.

Help support the children in SLO County by putting a team together or supporting a team that is already in place.  The 2011 Bowl For Kids' Sake event raised over $21,000 and in 2012 we are aiming for $30,000!

Funding provides for targeted and careful volunteer recruiting, screening and matching, as well as ongoing support for volunteers, children, and families, ensuring child safety and sustaining successful long term relationships with positive outcomes.  Every dollar we raise stays right here in our community, serving children in San Luis Obispo County and ensuring the positive results that come from well supported healthy mentor relationships.

Based on data we collect from our local clients, 87% of parents reported their child's self-confidence increased.  When children’s self-confidence increases and they feel better overall, positive changes start to occur.  Seventy seven percent increased their grades, 82% improved their classroom behavior, 77% were better able to avoid substance abuse, 75% showed more respect for other cultures, and 77% improved their relationships with other children.

Dust off your white suit and those platforms and get your dance moves ready!  We'll see you at the 'Disco Bowl'!
