What is Bowl for Kids Sake?

Bowl for Kids Sake is an important community fundraiser. Throughout January and February, nearly 250 corporate and community teams from across the Island work together to raise much needed funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of PEI.

What does raising money during Bowl for Kids Sake accomplish?

Creating a new match costs roughly $1200. If everyone on your team raises $150, your team could raise more than half the cost of a match. Aim for the $250 level, and you could be Matchmakers!

Since money invested in BBBS programs generates an average social return on investment of $18 for every dollar invested, the money you raise will have huge impact in our community!


The Event

On Saturday, March 4th and Sunday, March 5th, we will celebrate your fundraising achievements at the Great Big Canadian Birthday Party which includes:

  • 75 minutes of free bowling
  • Subway ® sandwiches
  • Pepsi products
  • Great prizes

Raise $150 and you will receive a BFKS T-shirt, a chance to win a special 150th prize package, and 2 ballots to win 2 tickets to anywhere Air Canada flies in North America! (includes Mexico, Hawaii, and the Caribbean).  

For every extra $50 you raise, you’ll receive another Air Canada ballot. And you can double your ballots by raising money on-line. There are great Raise & Win prizes, costume prizes, team prizes, and special prizes for Team Captains!
