Bowl For Kids' Sake


Bowl For Kids' Sake Raised $330,000 in 2016!

BFKS accounts for 1/3 of our annual budget. Without your support,
we wouldn't be able to serve youth facing adversity in our community. 
Bowl, have fun and Create Life-Changing Friendships.

What is BFKS?

Bowl for Kids' Sake (BFKS) is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cedar Rapids & East Central Iowa’s largest annual fundraising event. With the help of over 2,200 bowlers, in 2016 we raised an outstanding $330,000 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 – To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
