Whether you bowl strikes or gutter balls, Big Brothers Big Sisters wants you on its team for this year’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake — a community challenge to support at-risk youth and families in El Dorado County.
This family-friendly event takes place from non to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, at Folsom Bowl, 511 East Bidwell St.
Bowling teams generally consist of groups of four to six friends, family, co-workers or neighbors. Each team aims to raise $500 (or more) and take home a trophy for the most pledges collected and other fun awards. This year’s “Tip Your Hat to a Mentor” themed event (come with your favorite hat) will include two games of bowling for each team, all-you-can-eat pizza and nonalcoholic beverages for bowlers and plenty of music to get the ball rolling
“This is a BBBS signature fundraiser and one of our most important events of the year,” said Brenda Frachiseur, executive director of BBBS of El Dorado County. “Because 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to our agency, bowlers can take joy in knowing they are directly supporting a Big/Little match right here in our community. Plus, it’s a fun and friendly way to promote community connections and jointly support our important mentoring programs, while enjoying some spirited competition.”
It also provides a great opportunity for companies to foster co-worker team-building, for families to spend quality time together and for new and old friends to strengthen their relationships — all while supporting a great cause.
Bowling teams are forming now and signing up is easy. Call BBBS of El Dorado County at (530) 626-1222 or e-mail: [email protected] to learn how you can be a part of this life-changing event.
