Big Brothers Big Sisters of Westchester County
Game on! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Westchester County Inc. will host its Bowl for Kids’ Sake annual fundraising event on Tuesday, June 7th from 6-8pm at Bowlero Lanes in White Plains. The winners of the 2019 event were Big Alex and Little Carlos. The non-profit organization hopes to raise $40k to benefit its renowned mentorship program.
After a two-year hiatus, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Westchester County, Inc. invites the community to its annual fundraiser, Bowl for Kids’ Sake, on Tuesday, June 7th from 6 – 8 pm at Bowlero Lanes in White Plains.
“We haven’t been able to hit the lanes with this fun event since 2019 due to COVID, but we’re thrilled to bring it back in 2022,” said Valerie Brown, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Westchester County, Inc. “It’s a great way for our community to support us and learn more about the life-changing mentoring work we do, while rolling strikes and competing for prizes.”
The last Bowl for Kids’ Sake in 2019 saw a turnout of 175 people and raised $35k. This year Big Brothers Big Sisters is raising the bar with a goal of $40k. Participants can sign up individually or create a team of 4 to 6 people. Teams are asked to raise at least $500, or $100 per person. It’s as simple as rallying friends, neighbors and co-workers to join in the fun.
“Once your team is established the excitement builds from there. We encourage all participants to generate momentum for this event by spreading the word on social media and across their communities,” adds Brown. “Ultimately, this event makes a huge impact in so many young lives. Every dollar raised helps us create and support more one-to-one mentoring matches that turn at-risk kids into confident, productive adults.”
