This year, Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2020 is going Virtual!

In order to best align with social distancing recommendations, we’re making adjustments to bring the fun to you! 

BFKS 2.0 kicks off on Monday, July 6th. We’ve got four fun-filled weeks of exciting challenges, creative competitions, great prizes, and more! Each week, you can participate in an Activity Challenge and Fundraising Challenge. You can earn a raffle ticket for each challenge by participating each week. We will be giving away two prizes each week. (See our challenge list and calendar below). 

At the end of July, we’ll have a virtual bowling contest and crown our top companies and teams. You might not get your trophy for a few more weeks, but your bragging rights will be awarded immediately. 😉 We will also be giving prizes to all registered bowlers who raise $100 and $150. Bowlers who raise $300 or more will have a chance to win the grand prize, a 75″ Samsung TV (courtesy of Radio Shack)!

Just like before, asking for support from friends and family is easy. Once you register through our online platform, a fundraising page is created for you with built-in tools to ask for donations via social media, email, or text.  You can make an individual donation online to the event by clicking ”DONATE”. You can also support a bowler by clicking “SUPPORT A BOWLER” and search by name or team. If you prefer to collect pledges “in person” you can request pledging packets from our office. Just call Traci at 608-279-5993 or email kboll@bbbsgreencounty.org. Our average gift is just $20, so every gift can make a BIG IMPACT for our Littles.

At the end of the day, we all know that BFKS is a lot less about the bowling and a lot more about the kids. This year’s event looks different, but the need in our community hasn’t changed. Now more than ever, the mission and impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters is relevant and urgent. For the Littles and families in our program, the trusting and personal relationship they have with their Big will be vital as we provide critical resources, offer support, and ensure the well-being of our entire BBBS family. This work is only made possible through the support and passion of people like you. So thanks for “bowling” with us, and we can’t wait to see what you can do! 

If you know a business that would like to sponsor BFKS 2.0, please let us know! We are still accepting sponsors and every bit of funding to support our mission is more critical than ever before. Please email skaszuba@bbbsgreencounty.org for sponsorship opportunities.

  WEEKLY CHALLENGES

Complete challenges and earn tickets each week for a chance to win. We are giving away 2 prizes each week!

 

Activity Challenges are fun and engaging opportunities for you to get in the BFKS spirit. There will be a different activity posted for you to participate in each week. Complete the activity and share your proof by emailing us a short video or photo to traci.l.newman@gmail.com. Share on Facebook as well and encourage your connections to get involved and or donate! You’ll earn a raffle ticket for that week’s prize drawing upon successful submission to our office.

Fundraising Challenges provide a little extra motivation to get everybody asking for donations and recruiting new Bowlers to sign up. Each week has a new challenge with a prize giveaway at stake, so the more support you bring to our agency, the more opportunities you have to win BIG! At the end of July, one winner will walk home with the grand prize, a 75-inch Samsung TV (courtesy of Radio Shack). Don’t forget to share on social media tagging Big Brothers Big Sisters of Green County and email us!
