It’s time to get your team together for BBBSWNC’s annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake!
It’s that time of year again – Bowl For Kids’ Sake, happening in March 2023 to raise important funds for the mentoring programs coordinated by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina. (Skate For Kids’ Sake info is at bottom.)

Money raised during this annual event helps community children by enabling BBBSWNC staff to recruit and vet prospective “Bigs” who commit to being a steadfast presence in the child’s life for at least a year. Supported by professional BBBS staff locally in each of the 18 Western North Carolina counties that BBBSWNC serves, these matches have shown that they improve a child’s success in school and in life.
The theme of this year’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake – “Once Upon A Time” – reflects BBBSWNC’s commitment to improving its Littles’ reading skills.
Bowlers are asked to raise at least $50 each from their friends, family members and co-workers, so that the four- to five-member teams raise at least $250. Bowlers will bowl for two hours (shoe rental is included) while having a blast. Costumes are encouraged (in keeping with the “Once Upon A Time” theme, bowlers can consider their favorite book characters for inspiration). There will be a contest for Best Costume!
BBBSWNC’s goal this year is to raise $100,000 to further its mission to create and support mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. BBBSWNC has dozens of children waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister.
BBBSWNC has served thousands of children since it began more than 40 years ago. An affiliate of the largest, most trusted child empowerment organization in the country (BBBS of America), BBBSWNC places the child’s safety first and works with the parents/guardians to find a Big who will make a difference in a child’s life. Caregivers and prospective Bigs can learn more at www.bbbswnc.org.
