ASBURY PARK – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth & Middlesex Counties (BBBSMMC) is holding their 31st Annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser March 1-10 at various Monmouth & Middlesex County Bowling Centers to raise needed funds to sustain and expand their 1:1 mentoring programs.
Bowl for Kids’ Sake is BBBSMMC’s premier community fundraising event. Individuals as well as school, community, and corporate teams come together to spend time bowling with the focus on fun, friendship, camaraderie, and most importantly, the children in need of a positive role model.
“You don’t need to be a great bowler; you just need to care about kids and their future” remarked William Salcedo, executive director. “The Big Brothers Big Sisters program puts a caring mentor in the life of a child who needs a friend to guide them on a path to success. Bowl for Kids’ Sake raises awareness of our need for mentors as well as funds that help us reach more children.”
The agency is seeking sponsors and teams to meet their goal of raising $80,000 to support the BBBSMMC program. Those wishing to bowl in teams of 5 are each asked to raise a minimum of $100 individually and students are asked to raise $50 individually through pledges from friends, family & co-workers. Participants will enjoy bowling, food, and giveaways in celebration of their fundraising efforts. Sponsorship opportunities are also available ranging from $250 – $5000.
The Vision of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth & Middlesex Counties is that all children achieve success in life. BBBSMMC is a donor-supported, volunteer agency that is currently serving over 500 children by providing 1:1 mentoring and the agency is funded through individual gifts, grants and special events.
