Bowl for Kids' Sake is the primary funding source for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bennington County. Without community support at this event, Big Brothers Big Sisters would be unable to continue matching youth in the community with adult mentors.
Youth mentoring has proven to increase performance in school and reduce the likelihood of drug or alcohol experimentation. By providing guidance and direction, volunteers help the children realize their self-worth and potential as an adult. Higher grades, lower chances of substance abuse, and an increase in self-esteem are just some of the rewards in this meaningful program.
All money raised from this event will stay in the local area to help maintain current matches, and to build new ones.
**Each Team can have 5 Bowlers. We ask that each person on the team raises $50 addional dollars. Please contact Sam Kenyon at SKenyon@ucsvt.org with any questions.**
