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 expand what’s possible for youth!
Bowl For Kids’ Sake is the perfect way for individuals to make an impact on our community—and it only takes a little bit of effort to raise the money Big Brothers Big Sisters of WNC needs to serve over 2,000 regional youth each year.
During Spring 2020, several of our area branches will host Bowl For Kids’ Sake events, giving you plenty of opportunities to get involved by donating or registering a team to support our youth!

How Your Donation Helps
Big Brothers Big Sisters depends on donations to enroll volunteers and conduct background checks to ensure child safety. Donations help enroll youth and families, match Bigs and Littles, and provide ongoing professional support for children, families and volunteers. Our matching and support process is designed to build and sustain long-lasting relationships in all of our three programs.
Your power as a donor to expand horizons and aspirations and positively change the lives of local youth cannot be overstated! Thank you so much for starting something big in WNC.
