Bowl for Kids’ Sake seeks bowling teams

GREENVILLE – The annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake bowl-a-thon will be held March 7, 5-6 p.m. at Bel-Mar Lanes, Sidney, and Treaty Lanes, Greenville, and March 8, noon-4 p.m. at both bowling alleys. The festive “St. Patrick’s Day” atmosphere will again feature glow-in-the-dark bowling lanes, pins, and bowling balls. They also have a great line up of prizes, such as a choice of $500 cash, Kindle Fire and much more.

Due to the continued growth of the agency and the large demand for mentoring services in the two-county area, the Board of Trustees felt strongly about setting the goal at $30,000 for the 2014 fundraising event. The money raised goes directly towards establishing one-to-one mentoring relationships between caring adults and kids in need. Last year alone the agency served nearly 450 children within Shelby and Darke County. All funds stay in the county in which they are raised!

The agency aims to recruit 46 teams this year. Participation is open to the public and community members are asked to form 4-5 member teams. Each team member collects donations and comes out to bowl a game, get a T-shirt and join the party the day of the event. Plenty of free snacks and pizza, free bowling, and great door prizes are available throughout the event.

The minimum to participate is $40 and gets you admission to the party, a 2014 t-shirt, all the food that you can eat and an abundance of prizes. For participants 18 and under we ask that your raise $20.

For those who like a little friendly competition, Big Brothers Big Sisters will help in any way to fuel the fire. In the past they have had businesses participate and hold competitions between their branch locations to gauge which location could collect the most money.

Businesses can get involved through one of our many sponsorship options or by sponsoring an employee team. All corporate sponsors’ names are announced throughout the event.

If you are interested in forming a team or getting involved as a company, Bowl for Kids’ Sake registration is easy; call their office at 492-7611 or 547-9622 to get a form, or go on-line to www.bigbrobigsis-shelby-darke.org for team forms or corporate team option.
