What is Bowl for Kids' Sake all about?

Bowl for Kids' Sake (BFKS) is a great way to raise money to help kids reach their potential and change lives for the better. BFKS is Gallatin County's largest community fundraiser and nationwide is the largest athletic fundraiser of any youth-serving organization. BFKS raises crucial funds which make it possible to provide positive mentors in the lives of at-risk kids. We ask you to form teams of 5 bowlers and register your team online or over the phone (587-1216) with the Big Brothers Big Sisters for a bowling date and time. Bowlers receive pledge forms and then ask their friends, family and co-workers to financially sponsor them in Bowling for Kids' Sake. Your team then comes together with all of our other BFKS teams in October to celebrate your success with a bowling party!  This includes 2 hours of free bowling, MacKenzie River Pizza, Hot Mama's Salsa, Leaf & Bean cookies, prizes and more!

Why should I Bowl for Kids' Sake?
Your involvement makes an impact!  With the growing pressures put on today's families and youth, Big Brothers Big Sisters is needed even more.  Time and time again, studies have shown that Big Brothers Big Sisters positively impacts at-risk youth.  We have over 40 years (just here in Gallatin County) of proven success in creating positve friendships that benefit children, volunteers, families, schools, neighborhoods, and the community.  Last year we served over 200 children in Gallatin County and we hope to serve even more in the future.  You can help us reach this goal by being a part of BFKS and caring for our local children!

How do I raise money?
Each bowler is responsible for raising $100 each, or $500 per team.  We make fundraising easy with online giving and lots of tips. Ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you and the Big Brothers Big Sisters cause.  Your sponsors can donate on-line or by cash or check. The office staff at BBBS will be happy to set up your FirstGiving page and get you off to the right start!  Call 406-587-1216 to arrange this.  If you feel comfortable setting up your own page, go to: FirstGiving  Don't forget to bring your pledges and pledge form with the names of your sponsors to the bowling event.  Remember, every $25, $50 or $200 pledge makes a BIG difference for Big Brothers Big Sisters. You and your team are a significant part of helping a child succeed in life!

Get your Company Involved!
Boost morale, cultivate teamwork, create a better business and help kids! Consider being a Company Coordinator or becoming a Company Lane Sponsor ($750 gets you advertising in the Bozeman Bowl for 3 weeks and free bowling for a team of 5 bowlers). Many companies participate in Bowl for Kids' Sake because it is a fantastic way to engage employees while helping our community and instilling pride in your company!  Create challenges between your company teams, or challenge other businesses to add to the excitement and improve your outcome.  Many companies also match the pledges collected by their employees which doubles the impact of your fundraising!
