The 31st Annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake is on Saturday, April 7, 2018.
For 30 consecutive years Bowl for Kids’ Sake has been the primary fundraising event for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
“We’re very proud to support the Big Brothers Big Sisters program as the Title Sponsor for the seventh year. Positive mentoring plays such an important role in the development of our young people. ” said The Bank of Bennington President James Brown.
The year was 1987. Ronald Reagan was president, gas was 89 cents, the NY Giants defeated the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXI, the world population reached 5 billion people and Bowl For Kids’ Sake was introduced to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bennington County. Thirty years later we are still going strong and knocking those pins down.
On April 7th the community is invited to participate in Bowl For Kids’ Sake at Bennington Lanes. Funds raised allow Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bennington County to continue to make mentoring matches and provide ongoing assistance to mentors, mentees and families to help sustain long successful relationships unique to its program.
This is a fun, interactive way to make a difference. Local businesses can support the event by becoming event and lane sponsors, donating prizes for the top fundraisers, and encouraging employees to participate as Team Captains and team members. Bowlers then raise money by soliciting pledges from people they know. Each bowler is encouraged to raise a minimum of $50 in pledges; Costumes, clever team names, and friendly competition are also encouraged. Team Spirit awards will be presented in every wave, so dig out your parachute pants and aquanet hairspray and get your friends or coworkers together to form a team.
