Bowl for Kids' Sake is one of Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters largest community fundraisers.

Because of Yavapai County communities and their support, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be created and more futures will be defended and inspired.

Bowl for Kids' Sake is a fun and easy way to positively impact a child's life. Just follow the simple steps:

  1. Start a team at azbigs.org or call us at (928) 778-5135. Teams are formed with five or six members. Consider creating a team with family, friends, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters or co-workers.
  1. Start collecting pledges. Most bowlers raise about $125 per person, but many people raise over $1,000. At the $125 level, you receive a free BFKS T-shirt! What impact do you want to have?
  1. Start bowling. After collecting pledges, as a “thank you” for your hard work, you'll receive two free games of bowling (shoe and ball rental included), a Bowl for Kids' Sake T-shirt for pledges over $125, free pizza donated from Papa John’s, drinks and prizes.

Create your team, and get pledges, online at azbigs.org. Team Captain bags, T-shirt and pledge sheets are available by calling Nancy Hamerly at (928) 778-5135.

This year’s theme is Rock ‘n’ Bowl and we encourage team members to dress to the theme and rock out at their bowling parties.

Bowling pins will also be available for decoration when you pick up your captain bag – on a first come, first serve basis. You can enter them into a contest for prizes during your bowling session.

As a special incentive, any bowler who raises more than $2,020 will be placed into a drawing at the end of the fundraiser for a $250 Visa Gift Card.

Bowling party dates are March 21, 22, 28 and 29. We’re bowling this year at Plaza Bowl, Prescott; Antelope Lanes, Prescott Valley; and Shake, Rattle and Bowl in Camp Verde.

BFKS wouldn’t be a success without our community partners: A&E Reprographics, Allegra Print & Mail, Antelope Lanes, AZ Hometown Radio, B&W Fire Security, Chino Heating & Cooling, Credit Union West, Decision Point, Edge Tax Service, Fain Signature Group, Fann Contracting, Findlay Auto Group, Footework, Little Dealer Little Prices, Nackard Pepsi, Olsen’s Grain, Papa John’s, Plaza Bowl, Prescott True Value, Signals AZ, Sparklight, Totally Floored, Twin Lakes Auto, Pink Jeep, Prescott News Network, Prescott Woman Magazine, YRMC Foundation and Yavapai Block.

Partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters through Bowl for Kids' Sake makes a positive, long-lasting impact on children in our community.

Our mentoring works. It works to help broaden children's perspectives and help them learn how to make good choices. It starts a child on the path to fulfilling their potential and succeeding in school and life.
