Bowl for kid's sake
BFKS IS BACK IN 2023!!! MORE INFORMATION TO COME!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Louisiana’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake has been the agency’s largest annual fundraiser for almost 40 years.
Participants form teams of up to six bowlers who fund-raise on behalf of BBBS-SWLA in the weeks leading up to the event. Teams must raise a minimum of $300 but some teams raise even upwards of $3,000. The actual event is a celebration to thank those who have raised funds on behalf of the non-profit. Beer, soft drinks and food will be available on the day of the event, which takes place from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Fantastic prize packages donated by area Restaurants and Businesses are awarded to the top 10 fundraisers. Donated items generously donated by Southwest Beverage Company are given away during each bowling shift.
Bowlers are provided with a fundraising toolkit that contains all the information and directions they need on how to register their teams and motivate their bowlers to fundraise! With the additional funds raised, BBBS of SWLA will be able to mentor more youth in Southwest Louisiana.
