2022 Theme:

Bowl For Kids Sake

“BOWL FOR KIDS SAKE” is our largest and longest running fundraiser of the year.  Many children benefit from their participation in our Big Brother, Big Sister, Big Couple, Big Bunch and In-School Mentoring programs.  We do not receive any ongoing government funding; therefore we must continue to fund raise and to rely on donations from the community to provide our programs and services to the children of the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County.

We invite you to encourage your co-workers and friends to participate by entering a team.  There is no cost to the bowler and there are 3 time slots to choose from.  The event involves teams of bowlers, usually 5-6 people per team, collecting pledges in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters.  Upon registering, team members will be given a pledge sheet, to record their pledges and you can also sign up for on line pledging.
