POLK COUNTY–Bowling for Kids 2023 rolled its way to success last week, with the Polk County Big Brothers and Big Sisters fielding seven teams and raising over $3,000. 


Bowling for Kids is the primary BBBS fundraiser for Polk, Henderson, and Transylvania counties. The event took place at Tar Heel Lanes in Hendersonville with dozens of volunteers, bigs, and littles. The participants enjoyed bowling, pizza and a little competition.

BBBS expressed immense gratitude to Side Street Pizza, The Brick Pizza and Wolverine Pizza for saving the day and supplying over twenty-five pizzas for the event. 


Big Brothers Big Sisters of Polk County is off to a great start in its fundraising goals, due to business donations and individual support, but it could always use more to facilitate Bowling for Kids 2024. Funding also enables them to counsel many of the children in the program and their families, along with many other events, programs, and trips. Donations can be sent to BBBS of WNC at P.O. Box 1440, Tryon, NC 28782, or the website
