Bowl for Kids' Sake is a truly fun and special way to support Big Brothers Big Sisters and our work in Waco. We currently have sponsorship and team opportunities available!
What is Bowl for Kids’ Sake?
Bowl For Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ signature fundraiser. Each year half a million people across America come together to have fun and raise money to support Big Brothers Big Sisters as we change how children grow up! Bowl For Kids’ Sake is the perfect way for individuals to make an impact on our community - it only takes a little bit of effort to raise the money that is vital to our program’s success.
As a “thank you” for your support and enthusiasm, Big Brothers Big Sisters hosts a celebratory party at AMF Westview Lanes bowling center. No bowling expertise is required, only the willingness to share in our heartfelt and sincere thanks for helping us transform our community. Our event will be hosted on Saturday, February 25th from 3:00 to 8:00 PM at AMF Westview Bowling Lanes (West Waco Drive).
Where does the money go?
Big Brothers Big Sisters depends on donations to conduct background checks on volunteers to ensure child safety; and provide ongoing support for children, families and volunteers to build and sustain long-lasting relationships.
Your role in this effort to help local children cannot be over stated: We need your help to raise community awareness of the challenges faced by children in Waco, and to ask for the financial support need to help change the trajectory of a child’s life.
How can I get involved?
Step 1: Register your team! It’s easy to do online – just visit the website and sign up!
Step 2: Set a team fundraising goal- AIM HIGH! We suggest a minimum of $100/team member, but some of our top teams raise $2,500! To add some perspective, to reach the $100 individual goal you could ask 10 friends for just $10.00 each.
Step 3: Recruit 4 people to join your team. It could be friends, family, or co-workers. You’ve set an ambitious goal, so choose people who will help you exceed it!!
Step 4: Motivate your team to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring in Waco!
· Share information about the impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters on our community
· Keep your team informed about incentive prizes, rules, games, contests, etc.
· Communicate their success (Katie just got a $50 donation! Joe has already exceeded his goal of $200! Our team just surpassed the $1,000 mark!)
Step 5: Have Fun! Join us at AMF Westview Lanes to celebrate your team’s success! Remember, it’s not about how good a bowler you are, it’s celebrating the impact the money your team collected will have on our community!
Step 6: Say THANK YOU! Thank your team members for their time and commitment to participate! Don’t forget to say thank you to the people who donated to you! Call or e-mail them after the event to let them know how much money your team raised and thank them for supporting Waco children!
Please consider helping us spread the word throughout Waco about the importance of mentoring. If this sounds like an opportunity you would be interested in participating in, please let us know. We would love for you to join us!
