Bowl for Kids’ Sake re-imagined: June 2020

We are super excited to announce a re-imagined 42nd Annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraising campaign happening June 12-20, 2020!  It’s more than just a bowling event.  It’s more than just an online event!  There are lots of prizes to be won and there’s no fee to sign up!

This year’s edition – a bowl-from-home event – looks different due to physical distancing and a public health ban on large group gatherings, but it’s still all about kids.   Now more than ever, our impact is life-changing and our mission is urgent.  For the Littles and families in our program, the trusting, personal relationships they have with their Bigs continue to be vital.  Our one-to-one mentoring service has continued throughout the pandemic.  With your support of this fundraiser we will be best positioned to respond to the increase in demand for mentors by families whose children are suffering during this extended period of isolation.

We invite you to join in on the fun and be eligible to win prizes!!

  1. Register your team or yourself for this Bowl-from-Home event.  Here is also where you can simply make a donation.
  2. Develop a simple yet creative approach for a competition involving bowling or anything that rolls from home. It might take place in your backyard, on your deck, in your kitchen, from your desk or a comfy chair.  The items you could use are endless: pop cans, golf balls, paper towel rolls, milk cartons, soccer balls, pylons, marbles, dominoes, popsicle sticks, timbits or even a bowling app on your phone.
  3. Post to your Instagram or Facebook page an image or one-minute video of you playing your bowling/rolling game.  All entries must contain something that rolls.  The use of “bowling pins” is optional.   E-mail us at if you do not have access to Instagram or Facebook.
  4. Tag us @bbbsfredericton (Instagram) or @bigbrothersbigsistersfredericton (Facebook).
  5.  Challenge someone else near or far to get involved. Hopefully they will bowl at home and/or donate to the cause.
  6.   Check our Facebook page(@bigbrothersbigsistersfredericton) starting on June 12th for daily prize draws. A ballot will be entered in your name for posting one image/video, for issuing challenges, and for each $100 you raise.
  7. Tune in online on June 20th for a wrap-up celebration (you will be provided with a link). There will be awesome prizes awarded for creativity and for top fundraisers.  There will also be special edition t-shirts awarded to everyone who has raised at least $100!!
