***Due to restrictions on gatherings and out of safety concerns, our annual BFKS is being changed to a virtual Stroll for Kids’ Sake this year. There will not be a bowling event on the 13th of June. Please visit support.bigstri.org/bfks2020 to find out more about Stroll of Kids’ Sake and to register. If you are already signed up for BFKS 2020 your page will work for SFKS. Contact us with any questions here***
Bowl For Kids’ Sake is one of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle’s signature fundraiser. Each year hundreds of people across the Triangle come together to have fun and raise money to support BBBBT 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, BBBST hosts a celebratory party at AMF South Hills. No bowling expertise is required, only the willingness to share in our heartfelt and sincere thanks for helping us transform our community. Join us this year in your 70’s gear to celebrate our “Disco” theme!
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle 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 can not be over stated: We need your help to raise community awareness of the challenges faced by local children and to ask for the financial support need to help change the trajectory of a child’s life.
