2017 Danville Bowl For Kids' Sake

2017 Danville Bowl For Kids' Sake

About This Event

Bowl for Kids' Sake is a fun and easy way for you and your company, church, friends, or family to support the life-changing work of Big Brothers Big Sisters. If you care about kids and can spare an hour to have fun with your friends, then Bowl For Kids' Sake is for you!

Here’s how it works:

1) Select the buttons to the right to register a team as a team captain or participate as a bowler, donate or become an event sponsor. *PLEASE NOTE: the team captain must also join the team as a participant, after creating the team page. Each team of 4-5 fundraising bowlers will receive bowling shoes, t-shirts, food tickets, and team photos. Be advised: team rivalries, outrageous costumes, and all levels of bowling skill (or lack thereof) are encouraged and common.

2) The team captain must choose a time slot. Don’t forget to arrive 30 minutes before your start time to get settled on your lane and get a bite to eat, as bowling begins promptly at the beginning of the shift.

3) Registering online will create a personal bowling page that you can send to friends and family or post on social media - have fun with it! Upload a photo, tell people why you are “bowling for kids’ sake,” and ask others to invest in mentoring by making a donation. The goal is for each bowler to raise $50 – that's only $10 from 5 friends! Not to mention, there will be prizes for top fundraisers.

4) Get your groove on Through the Decades! Join us at Bowlarama for a party of 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, music, food, fun, photos, prizes, and of course, bowling. Don’t forget socks!

Event to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass

Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs a child with a role model, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship, built upon trust and friendship, that can blossom into a future of unhalted, unlimited potential. And thanks to the first-ever nationwide impact study of a mentoring organization, we have the facts to prove it. The Study and Results In a study completed by Public/Private Ventures, a national research organization headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, researchers found that after 18 months of spending time with their Bigs, the Little Brothers and Little Sisters, compared to those children not in our program, were representative of the following: 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs 27% less likely to begin using alcohol 52% less likely to skip school 37% less likely to skip a class 33% less likely to hit someone Alongside the statistics, the study also found that the Littles were more confident in their performance at school, and were getting along better with their families. The matches observed in the study shared simple, everyday activities together, such as going out to eat, going to the movies, playing sports or simply hanging out and sharing meaningful conversation. What mattered most to the children, however, was not just the activities: it was the fact that they had a caring adult in their lives who was there for them. "When Little Brothers and Little Sisters feel good about themselves," said Karen J. Mathis, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America President and CEO, "they can positively impact their friends and families, their schools, and their communities. And as this important study has shown, these young people believe in themselves because a Big Brother or Big Sister believed in them.” Because they had someone to confide in and look up to, the children were doing better in school and at home, and were avoiding violence and substance abuse at a time in their lives when the smallest choice could change the course of their entire future.
