Bowl for kid's sake

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Louisiana’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake has been the agency’s largest annual fundraiser for almost 40 years.   DUE TO DAMAGE SUSTAINED TO PETRO BOWL LAKE CHARLES BY HURRICANES LAURA AND DELTA, BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE HAS BEEN POSTPONED FOR 2021 AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR 2022. DATE TBA. 


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 $180 but some teams raise even upwards of $1,000. 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 the Golden Nugget Lake Charles and L'Auberge Casino Resort are awarded to the top 10 fundraisers. Raffle 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-SWLA hopes to expand the mentoring programs that currently exist in our community, as well as potentially introduce new programs down the line.
