2004 Bowl for Kids Sake

Big Brothers & Sisters of Green Country’s annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake, Tulsa’s #1 campaign for kids, has begun recruiting teams. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is the largest single fundraiser for Big Brothers & Sisters and is among the largest such events in the country. Bowl for Kids’ Sake enables thousands of people to participate in Big Brothers & Sisters’ mission: “Re-creating the extended family for children in need.” In 2003 over 3700 bowlers secured pledges totaling over $450,000 from more than 26,000 sponsors. 

This year’s event is even more significant – it’s the 20th anniversary of both the agency and Bowl for Kids’ Sake.  Tulsa-area corporate and individual participants have for two decades embraced helping the agency serve greater and greater numbers of children – culminating to over 1100 children in Tulsa in 2003.  The agency’s goal is to serve 3400 children by 2010 in accordance with the Big Brothers Big Sisters America challenge of serving 1 million children nationwide by 2010.    

Anyone can participate. Interested bowlers form teams of five and solicit pledges from family, friends, and colleagues.  Big Brothers & Sisters handles all billing to sponsors for pledges.  Special bowling parties begin in February and continue through April. Bowlers enjoy free bowling, refreshments and fun, while raising money for at-risk kids.  

All bowlers are eligible for prizes such as hats, t-shirts, dinner gift certificates, etc.   Bowlers arriving at their party dates with $125 or more in pledges win specially designed t-shirts.  Additional door prizes are given away during the bowling parties and special premium awards are given based upon the amount of paid pledges.  

Major Bowl for Kids’ Sake corporate sponsors to date are John Zink, Bank of America, and Tulsa World & Lorton Family.

At Big Brothers and Sisters we believe we can change the world … one child at a time.
