Bowl for Kids’ Sake, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County’s largest fundraiser of the year, kicks off Friday, March 2, at Belmar Lanes in Sidney starting at 4:30pm, and at Treaty Lanes in Greenville starting at 5:30pm. This two-day bowl-a-thon will continue on Saturday, March 3 at both locations with Belmar bowling times starting at 1pm and Treaty starting at 2pm. Bowling lane reservations are filling up quickly, so please call to reserve a lane for your team.

Participation is open to the public, and community members are asked to form teams consisting of 4-6 team members. Individual bowlers are asked to raise a minimum of $40, or $25 if under the age of 18, to be eligible to participate in this event. Contributions allow admission to the party, a Bowl for Kids’ Sake t-shirt, pizza, snacks, and the chance to win many door prizes.

The money raised goes directly towards establishing one-to-one mentoring relationships between positive role models and children in need. Last year alone the agency served nearly 400 children throughout Shelby and Darke County. All funds stay in the county in which they are raised! The goal for this year’s event is $43,075, and the agency is currently short of that goal by $18,150. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is an affordable advertising opportunity for local companies and businesses, not to mention a wonderful chance for employee team building. There are a variety of sponsor levels available.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit United Way member agency. If you would like to become an event sponsor, donor, volunteer, or learn more about how you can make a difference in a child’s life, contact our local agency at 937-492-7611, 937-547-9622, or go to for more information.
