2512 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC
Bowl for Kid’s Sake 2014 (BFKS)
To benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS)
Per discussion with the staff at BBBS, they don’t need volunteers for this event, but they really do need teams. So, this is a participation event, not a volunteer event.
This is an annual event for all BBBS agencies across the country. Teams of 4-5 people (any combo of adults and
kids) raise $500. Then we all gather on Saturday, February 22, 2014 to celebrate our fundraising with bowling and a party.
The bowling parties are held at two locations:
The Alley on Hillsborough Street
Village Lanes in N. Durham
Although $500 sounds like a lot of money, it’s easier to manage when you think of just $100 per team member, which is just 5 friends giving $20 each, or 10 friends giving $10 each, or 20 friends giving $5 each. For your efforts, you get free bowling, free shoe rental, free t-shirt, and free door prize.
BFKS gets really fun when a company sponsors several teams from diff departments or branches and they compete in their fundraising. It’s a great corporate team-building event and also hits the community involvement / giving back element that so many companies are focusing on now.
