2018 Bowl for Kids' Sake (BFKS)

What is BFKS?

Every year our agency holds a BFKS fundraising event where community and business members form bowling teams that meet fundraising goals. These teams' contributions are then celebrated at the event where they bowl for prizes all while promoting more awareness for our agency's mission. This will be our 20th year of raising funds through BFKS to serve youth in our community. 


The event will be held on Saturday, May 5th at the Oak Bowl. Bowling times are 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM.

How to create a team:

Bowling teams consist of 5 players. Each team member is responsible for raising at least $125 ($625 per team). Meeting those fundraising minimums allow each team entrance to bowl at the event where they'll enjoy free bowling, food and prizes. Team members will also receive a free BFKS shirt. Beer will also be available for purchase. 


Awards will be given to the team that raises the most funds and the team with the highest bowling score. 


Funds raised by each team are due by the start of the event on Saturday, May 5th. 


All funds raised will go towards our agency's mission of serving children in our community by providing them with professionally supported 1-to-1 mentoring relationships.

We believe that a caring adult role model is one of the best prevention tools in existence. Independent studies done on the Big Brother Big Sister program have shown the effectiveness of the program.
