Area churches, organizations, businesses, friends and family are encouraged to create a team of three to five bowlers to support this significant fundraising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

For info on how you can join, please contact BBBS at 828-859-9230 or polk@bbbswnc.org.

Team members arrive about 20 minutes early, in time to register, turn in pledges raised, get T-shirts, shoes and bowling balls, then get started bowling two games from noon-2 p.m.

Pizza and drinks will be served.

Bowlers are eligible to win door prizes donated by local businesses, such as pieces by area potters Jim Cornell, Doug Dacey and Claude Graves, gift certificates for services and area restaurants, and many other items.

Partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters through Bowl for Kids’ Sake makes a positive, long-lasting impact on children in our community.

BBBS appreciates local supporters for taking a little time to help kids and have big fun…at Bowl for Kids’ Sake.
