38th Annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake

The 38th Annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake — sponsored by Tompkins VIST Bank — is coming!  Benefiting our quality-driven mentoring programs, BFKS is our largest internal fundraiser of the year — as we are seeking to raise over $80,000 this year.  YOU can help defend potential in Berks County youth in a number of ways:

Form your team(s) of 4-5 bowlers and join us at one of our three bowling days.  Remember, it doesn’t matter if you are an avid bowler or a first-timer, because it’s not about bowling.  It’s about having FUN to HELP KIDS!

We ask each team to raise a minimum of $300.  Each team gets a free game of bowling — and each bowler gets a BFKS event t-shirt, lunch/snacks/refreshments, and a Thank You envelope with surprises.  Individual bowlers raising at least $150 qualities for our Grand Prize drawing of $500 worth of gift cards courtesy of Boscov’s.

There are two ways to register.  Call (610) 373-5544 to get a BFKS Team Packet sent to you or register on-line at https://give.classy.org/BerksBFKS2020


Sponsor a team of Littles and Bigs to bowl.  Companies and individuals can sponsor a team of Littles/Bigs to bowl.  Each Little/Big on the team — through your generosity — will receive the same benefits as a bowling team from the community, while benefiting from the continued services of our four (4) mentoring programs AT NO COST to them or their families.  A Littles Team Sponsor is only $300 (co-sponsor level is $150).

Join Prime Sponsor Tompkins VIST Bank as a Corporate Sponsor.  The Giorgi Foundation, East Penn Manufacturing, Penske, Reading Precast, and Stevens & Lee have already done so…and so can your company!  T-shirt Sponsors ($2,500 level) get their logos displayed on about 900 BFKS event t-shirts given to all bowlers, event volunteers, and staff.  There are two other Corporate Sponsor levels:  Major Sponsor ($1,000) and Assisting Sponsor ($500).

Interested in being a Corporate Sponsor or a Littles Team Sponsor, call Jim Smith at (610) 373-5544 to learn more or email him at JimS@BigsInBerks.org.  Interested sponsors can also get more information at https://give.classy.org/Support_BerksBFKS2020
