About This Campaign

Who was your childhood hero?

Was it your mom, your dad, your favorite teacher or a coach?

Bowl for Kids' Sake is your chance to honor a hero that impacted your life as a child or teen.

By raising funds in honor of  your hero YOU will Be a Hero to the 104 local kids in our community waiting to meet their hero!

It's SO simple! Form a five person team and pledge to raise $625 - only $125 per person! Hit your fundraising goals and join the party in your honor to celebrate YOU and win great prizes, enjoy tasty food & play incredible games! HAVE FUN!

This two-day event  helps move children off the waiting list and matches them with the Bigs they deserve!

100% of funds raised are used locally to create and nurture life-changing friendships between at-risk youth and caring adult mentors.

The event begins each night with a happy hour/check-in from 5-5:55pm and officially kicks off at 6pm.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan

Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. The organization currently serve children in a 5 county region in Northwestern Michigan.For over 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan has been bringing smiles to the faces of children by matching them with adult volunteers in fun and rewarding mentoring relationships. The impact it has on children in the program is priceless, and the heartwarming stories we've collected from Big and Littles in our program over the years are endless.Mentoring is a powerful thing. It’s fun, most anyone can be a mentor and it’s life-changing. By simply participating in fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child, it can potentially rewrite a child's future, for the better. However, for as big of an impact that mentoring makes on a child, you’ll be amazed at what it will do for you, too
