Bowl for Kids Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ premier fun-raising event where people like you get together with friends, family, and co-workers and have a fun time bowling in support of Big Brother Big Sister mentoring programs in metro St. John’s.

Your mission – raise money to help children and youth reach their full potential 

All children need support and encouragement from caring adults to help fulfill their potential. We connect young people with carefully selected mentors that result in friendships. These relationships ensure outcomes like resilience, improved school achievement, confidence and strength to make positive life choices. Each year over 450 young people are matched with a mentor right here in our community.

What does raising money during Bowl for Kids Sake accomplish?

Families reach out to Big Brothers Big Sisters in ever-growing numbers for support, and our ability to help them relies on our fundraising success. Creating a new match between a volunteer and child has an annual cost of $1,200. YOU and your team can become a MatchMaker. Aim to raise $1,200 and help invest in the creation of a new match relationship. Every dollar raised helps us help kids!
