A&B Courier Bowl for Kids’ Sake
Bowl For Kids’ Sake (BFKS) our annual fundraising event in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of York helping to benefit at risk youth through our mentoring programs, returns with a fun fandemonium theme. Teams are invited to wear their favourite team jerseys while bowling in support of local children and youth.
Get together with friends, family, and co-workers and have a fun time bowling in support of Big Brother Big Sister mentoring programs in your community.
Your participation in our bowl-a-thon will help match these youth with caring mentors in the community and schools. No matter how you choose to participate, your support will help us grow our programs to ensure that the children and youth in York Region have the mentoring and supportive relationships they need to inspire and empower them to reach their full potential.

Impact of your support
Many children and youth in York struggle with societal barriers and face adversities in their lives. These circumstances have nothing to do with the value of who they can become, but because of these situations, youth risk not having the opportunity to live up to their full potential. This comes at a cost to the young person and to society. With the guidance and support of a mentor, these risks can be reduced, or even avoided, and youth are reminded that they can be anything they dream of being. Your support is a crucial element of developing vital mentoring relationships and creating that positive world. Imagine who they can become because of you.
Bowl for Kids Sake participants believe in supporting good causes that create strong, healthy communities for children. They are educated consumers who value and patronize companies that give back to the community. On average, each of our 500+ participants collects 10 pledges – that’s 5,000+ people who hear about BFKS from a friend or colleague. In addition to tremendous word-of-mouth promotion, Bowl for Kid Sake is supported by a media campaign that includes radio, print, social media, and our website. We provide our sponsors with a variety of ways to connect with our event participants and their supporters.
