What is Bowl for Kids’ Sake?
Bowl for Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida’s largest annual fundraising campaign. It’s not about the bowling; it’s about taking part in a fun activity to help our local kids in need!

Who Bowls?
You, your friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and co-workers. People across the community put together bowling teams and ask for pledges. Many add to the fun by challenging others to friendly fundraising competitions. Then, they come and settle the score at the bowling alley.

How Do I Get Involved?
Once you have committed to become a team captain, gather 3-5 additional team members. Register your team online and start using our simple fundraising website to request donations! The Bowl for Kids’ Sake website is now available.

How Does it Work?
Each bowling team consists of 4-6 people

Each team registers online at our Bowl for Kids’ Sake website. To register by phone, call (850) 433-5437.

Each team is asked to raise a minimum of $100 per team member. On average, it costs $1,000 to make and support a Big/Little match for one year.

The team captain selects their team’s preferred bowling shift: 5:00 PM, or 7:30 PM

Finally, your team comes out to Bowl for Kids’ Sake! Each team bowls two games; shoes included, prizes, music, and lots of FUN!
