Big Brothers Big Sisters is calling on the local communities to Bowl for Kids’ Sake next weekend.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties is holding its annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake event on Saturday, April 5, 3 p.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, April 6, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., at the Laurel Lanes Bowling Alley in Maple Shade.

This two-day event is the largest annual fundraiser for the agency and is designed to raise money to support the agency’s mission – to make a positive difference in the lives of children in Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties. Last year, the event yielded over $70,000.

“We count on the success of Bowl for Kids’ Sake to help us continue our work of mentoring and changing the lives of children in our community,” Rob Jakubowski, the agency’s CEO, said. “We like to say, this event is not about bowling… it’s about helping kids in our community and having fun!”
Laurel Lanes is located at 2825 Route 73 in Maple Shade.  There will be a free after-party following the Saturday session from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. for all registered bowlers. Local bands will perform.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is looking for teams of four to eight people to compete in this year’s event and all teams are welcome – corporate, church, fraternal, community, etc.

Registration is $25 per person and includes three hours of bowling, an event t-shirt, shoe rental, pizza, soda and access to all activities. In addition to bowling, the event features fun activities for the whole family including face painting, crafts, games, an auction, raffle and a ton of fun!

Family registration is also available for immediate family members at $90 per family. Teams are encouraged to fundraise and collect pledges from friends and family members.

Fundraiser incentives are available. All proceeds from the event will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties and support one to one mentoring relationships in the tri-county area.
