Bowl for kids 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. This year, let's get ready to ROCK with our Battle of the Bands celebration!

How does it work?

  • Participants form teams of up to six bowlers who raise funds on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of SWLA in the weeks leading up to the event.
  • One participant will serve as the "team captain" to pay the $360 registration fee. (Individual payments to the team captain by bowlers can be made on a personal basis.)
  • This fee secures a lane for the up-to-six-bowler team with two beer tickets and a snack for each bowler AND counts towards the team's $500 fundraising goal.
  • After the lane is secured, team members work together to collect donations leading up to the day of the fundraiser celebration taking place on Saturday, August 17th, 2024, at Petro Bowl in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Bowlers will be provided with a fundraising toolkit that contains all of the information and directions they need on how to begin fundraising! 

Fantastic prize packages donated by area restaurants and businesses are awarded to the top 8 fundraisers, announced after Bowl for Kids' Sake. There will also be prizes announced each Friday in the weeks leading up to Bowl for Kids' Sake as we keep a running leaderboard of fundraisers contributing to our Bowl for Kid's Sake 2024 goal of $130,000!

All funds go towards the over 250 youth we mentor annually Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jeff Davis, Vernon, and Rapides Parishes, continuing the work of our mission: to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. Our vision is that all youth achieve their full potential, and with your help, we can work towards seeing that come true.
