What is BFKS?

BFKS is Bowl for Kids' Sake, and it is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cedar Rapids and East Central Iowa’s largest fundraising event. With the help of over 2,900 bowlers, in 2014 we raised an all-time agency record of $382,406, which exceed our goal of $372,000 and was over $3,000 more than 2013, to support our work of providing mentors to children in our area!  By bowling with us or making a donation to a bowler (or both!), you help us carry out our mission – Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.


Companies and individuals who want to support the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters while having fun.  Get a team of 6 people together and reserve your lane today by contacting Trina at 319-377-8993 or Trinar@beabigcr.org!
