To our dedicated friends and supporters,
We want to keep you apprised of all we are doing at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay to ensure the health and safety of our staff, donors,volunteers, Littles and their families.
In an abundance of caution, we are suspending all Bowl for Kids’Sake bowling parties until we navigate this ever-changing situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Helping to mitigate the spread of the virus means minimizing contact with large groups of people,especially at indoor events. With Bowl for Kids’ Sake being our oldest national fundraiser and a major line of revenue to support our programs and the almost 3,000 children we serve across our community, it is imperative that we continue fundraising for this important campaign. We still need your help! The good part is that you can STILL register a team and fundraise! Instead of having the physical bowling parties that were scheduled, we will be holding a VIRTUAL Bowl for Kids’ Sake campaign.
Thanks to our wonderful partners, we are able to offer some incredible prizes for those teams who raise $50 or more as a thank you for your financial support until we are able to reschedule our bowling parties to celebrate everyone’s accomplishments.
Please stay tuned to our website (bbbstampabay.org) and our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & LinkedIn)for official updates.
We are resilient in our mission to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. Thank you for all you do to support us in these endeavors, as we need you now more than ever.
Wishing you and yours the best of health,
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay
Sun. 3/29 2-4pm: Pin Chasers Midtown, 4847 N Armenia Ave, Tampa 33603
Bowl for Kids' Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters largest national fundraiser, raising over $20 million annually for children in need across the country.

Bowl for Kids' Sake is a fun and easy way to positively impact a child's life. Just follow the simple steps below:
1) Start a team - Teams are formed with five or six members. Consider creating a team with family, friends, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, or co-workers.
2) Start securing sponsorship -
Most bowlers raise about $170, but many people raise over $1,000. What impact do you want to have?
