Bowl For Kids' Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Kentucky's largest annual fundraising event, which provides half of our annual operating budget. During this fundraiser, over 1,000 individuals in our community turn out to bowl for the benefit of Big Brothers Big Sisters' mentoring programs. Dollars raised at this event support local volunteer recruitment efforts, as well as provide professional staff who screen volunteers before they are matched, perform monthly monitoring of each match's progress, and organize group events for both active matches and for those children still waiting to be matched. Our agency supports 300 matches each year and our goal for 2013 are to serve over 300 children in our community.
The more money raised at Bowl For Kids' Sake, the more children Big Brothers Big Sisters will be allowed to serve and inspire to reach their full potential through an ongoing relationship with a caring adult.
