22 Years of Bowling for Gallatin County Kids Oct 4,5,11,12,13

Thursday Sep. 19th, 2013

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County is looking for businesses, organizations and individuals to participate in its annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake event. The event takes place on October 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th, and 13th at The Bowl in downtown Bozeman.  This year marks the 22nd year of the Gallatin County bowling to support local kids facing adversity.

Last year, nation-wide, Bowl for Kids’ Sake was the largest athletic fundraiser of any youth-serving organization. In 2012, the local Bowl for Kids’ Sake drew over 100 teams including the creatively named “Bowlacudas”, “Alley Gators” and “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Gutter”. Major business supporters last year included Keller Williams Realty and First Interstate Bank, each with four teams, and Tri-H Stables with six teams. The goal this year is to have more than 130 teams and over 650 bowlers.
Local businesses can support the event by becoming event and lane sponsors, prize donors, and by encouraging employees to participate as teams of five bowlers. Each bowler is encouraged to raise $100 in pledges and then celebrate with two hours of free bowling, food and drinks, prizes, t-shirts and more! Teams can choose from Business, Cosmic, Family bowling days and will be eligible to win top fundraising prizes.

Participating in Bowl for Kids’ Sake as a bowler, team, sponsor, or volunteer helps local children achieve success in life. Every dollar raised through Bowl for Kids’ Sake will directly fund local Big Brothers Big Sisters matches in Bozeman, Belgrade, Three Forks, Manhattan, Ennis and Big Sky, providing children with positive long-term positive mentors.
