About Bowl For Kids’ Sake

The Cause

Bowl For Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa’s signature fundraiser, raising more than $100,000 each year for children in need throughout the Des Moines community. Because of Bowl For Kids’ Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be created and more lives can be changed.

1. Start a Team or Join One

Bowl For Kids’ Sake is a fun and easy way to positively impact a child’s life. The fun begins by starting or joining a team (up to five members). Teams are perfect for friends, family, coworkers, fraternity brothers or sorority sisters. Any group is a great candidate for a Bowling For Kids’ Sake team.

2. Secure Donations

Next it’s time to start securing donations. Commit yourself, or ask friends, relatives and coworkers to help or join your team. Most bowlers raise $125, but many people raise over $1,000. It all depends on what kind of impact you want to have for the kids in central Iowa.

3. Time to Bowl

Last, join us on March 2nd to bowl! After you have secured your donations, it’s time to have fun! You’ll receive two free games of bowling (shoe and ball rental included!), a Bowl For Kids’ Sake T-shirt (if you raise your goal of $125) and chances to win fun prizes!
