PRLog - Aug. 25, 2014 - FORT WORTH, Texas -- Big Brothers Big Sistersis appealing to residents across Tarrant County to participate in Bowl for Kids’ Sake, the mentoring organization’s biggest annual fundraiser. The bowl-a-thon will be held on Saturday, September 6 at 12:00 p.m. at the Brunswick Zone in Watauga.

“Bowl for Kids’ Sake cis an opportunity to have fun for a great cause – our children’s futures,” says Shay Girard, Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Regional Executive Director. “No matter how someone chooses to be involved—bowler, team captain, sponsor, or even a virtual bowler—each person has a hand in helping to start a child on the right path. “

Teams of five or six will compete against other teams – as bowlers and as fundraisers. Each team will receive two free games of bowling, as well as food and drinks, t-shirts, and several chances to win prizes. Awards will be given for top fundraisers and event theme participation. This year’s event is 90’s themed. Teams are encouraged to wear their favorite fashions from that decade. As a special fundraising incentive, the three teams that raise the most money prior to the event will get to enjoy a pre-event party at the Capital Grille in Fort Worth, as well as travel in a luxury party bus to and from the bowling alley compliments of Gotta Go Trailways.

Funds raised at this event will allow Big Brothers Big Sisters to carefully make more mentoring matches and provide ongoing assistance for mentors, mentees and families to help build and sustain long lasting relationships. By pledging to raise a minimum of $125, you can help Big Brothers Big Sisters reach its goal to raise $40,000 through Bowl For Kids’ Sake to help more than  80 children within  Tarrant County.
