The bowl-a-thon will be held Friday, March 6, with time slots at 4,5, & 6 p.m. at Bel-Mar Lanes in Sidney and 5 at Treaty Lanes in Greenville, and Saturday, March 7, with time slots from 12, 1, & 2 p.m. at Bel-Mar Lanes in Sidney and Treaty Lanes in Greenville. The festive “St. Patrick’s Day” atmosphere will again feature lots of green and pots of gold. We also have a great line up of prizes, such as a choice of $500 cash, ipad mini and much more.

Due to the continued growth of the agency and the large demand for mentoring services in the two-county area, the Board of Trustees felt strongly about setting the goal at $38,000 for the 2015 fundraising event. The money raised goes directly towards establishing one-to-one mentoring relationships between caring adults and kids in need. Last year alone the agency served nearly 400 children within Shelby and Darke County. All funds stay in the county in which they are raised!

The agency aims to recruit 45 teams this year. Participation is open to the public and community members are asked to form 4-5 member teams. Each team member collects donations and comes out to bowl a game, get a T-shirt and join the party the day of the event. Plenty of free snacks & pizza, free bowling, and great door prizes are available throughout the event.

The minimum to participate is $40 and gets you admission to the party, a 2015 t-shirt, all the food that you can eat and an abundance of prizes. For participants younger than 18 we ask that your raise $20.

For those who like a little friendly competition, Big Brothers Big Sisters will help in any way to fuel the fire. In the past we have had businesses participate and hold competitions between their branch locations to gauge which location could collect the most money.

Businesses can get involved through one of our many sponsorship options or by sponsoring an employee team. All corporate sponsors’ names are announced throughout the event.

If you are interested in forming a team or getting involved as a company, Bowl for Kids’ Sake registration is easy; you can call our office at 937-492-7611 or 547-9622 to get a form, or go directly on-line to www.bigbrobigsis-shelby-darke.org for team forms or corporate team option.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a nationally recognized event, and almost 700 agencies across the county participate and hold the event. Big Brothers Big Sisters evaluates its effectiveness and impact on a national and local level. Results show that children who are mentored are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and peers and are less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol.
