Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2023 looking for teams

Annual Big Brother Big Sister fundraising event set for March 4
FOOTHILLS–Organizers for Bowl for Kids’ Sake, the signature fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina, are looking for bowling teams to participate in the annual event.
Funds raised at Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2023 enable BBBS to recruit and vet prospective mentors who commit to being steadfast in a child’s life for at least a year. These mentors have shown that they improve a child’s success in school and life.
Bowl For Kid’s Sake invites bowlers to create a bowling team of four to five members for the event, or join one online. Each bowler is asked to raise a minimum of $50 in donations, with each team raising $250.
Once donations are secured, bowlers will receive two games of bowling, with shoe rental included, and lunch for their teams. There will also be chances to play contests and win door prizes at the event.
The theme of this year’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake is “Once Upon A Time,” and bowlers are encouraged to dress up as their favorite book, graphic novel or folklore character. The theme showcases Big Brothers Big Sisters’ commitment to improving the reading skills of the Littles that participate in their programs.
BBBSWNC has enlisted local literacy partners to make books available to the Littles at home. The literacy initiative is meant to help local children make up the ground they lost during the pandemic, and to remind everyone that reading is fun.
Big Brothers Big Sisters has served thousands of children since it began more than 40 years ago. This year, BBBSWNC has a goal to raise $100,000 to further its mission. Currently, there are dozens of children in the program waiting for Bigs.
