Bowl for Kids Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters' premiere, national fund raising campaign. Participants like you believe in supporting good causes that create strong, healthy communities for our children.  Bowl for Kids Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saint John's most important fundraising event of the year!  Your contribution allows us to continue to support existing matches and grow our programs by matching more children. This event allows us to raise funds for programs and services for youth in Greater Saint John, Sussex and Charlotte County.  It's also a great way for a group of adult supporters to have a lot of fun!

Get together with your friends, family, and co-workers and have a fun time bowling in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs in your community.  Your support of this event will help to ensure that we are effectively serving our present youth clients and will enable us to expand our reach into the community.

This year's theme is "Celebrate Canada 150" so get your red and white gear ready and join us to celebrate 150 years of Canadian pride! Organize your team of 4 to 6 bowlers, start your fundraising and join us for a whole lot of fun!

  • Teams consist of 4 to 6 players
  • Choose a 90-minute bowling time
  • Trivia and prizes!
  • Wear your patriotic red and white, your Canada themed outfit or wrap yourself in the Canadian flag (sorry, no moose, geese or beavers allowed in the bowling alley :))!
  • Have a great time celebrating Canada 150!
  • Participants must raise a minimum of $100 to be eligible for prizes!

We encourage you to hold fund raising events or collect donations from your colleagues, friends and family.    You can use one of our paper pledge sheets or you can do it all online if you wish. Set an individual or team fundraising goal to motivate you and your teammates.  

Remember that you are making a difference in the lives of children in our community.  You have "started something BIG"
