Bowl For Kids' Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah's largest annual fundraiser. They have been bowling for kids’ sake for over 25 years in Utah. In 2014, over $160,000.00 was raised by local community members. Every dollar is used to support children in the community so they can realize their potential through a professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationship. This event is open to anyone who would like to participate in a fun activity that gives back to the community. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a great team-building activity for companies or an entertaining outing for families and friends. On the day of the event, participating bowlers receive two hours of bowling, shoe rentals, pizza, drinks, t-shirts, and prizes from our generous community sponsors. Sponsorship opportunities for companies are available. Please visit their website: www.bbbsu.org/bfks2015
