41st Annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake is coming!

As we race towards the end of the first month of the new year, you might be asking yourself: Hmmmm, how can I have fun AND help kids?  Well, I’ve got the perfect answer…Bowl For Kids’ Sake!  After all, it’s not really about bowling — rather it’s about having FUN while helping to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County!

The 41st Annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake takes place April 25th at Hiester Lanes and April 29th-30th at Berks Lanes. Thank you to our friends at Tompkins Community Bank, who have again joined on as our Prime Sponsor for the 2023 BFKS.

Teams of up to 4-5 bowlers (your family, friends, co-workers, etc.) get together for an hour of bowling, free food, and much more.  We ask each team to raise a minimum of $300 (which amounts to an average of only $60 per bowler for a five-bowler team).   You can get things started and register your team now by calling (610) 373-5544 and/or register on-line at https://give.classy.org/BerksBFKS2023

Each bowler gets a BFKS event t-shirt and a Thank You envelope with coupons from local businesses.  Individual bowlers raising $150 or more are eligible for our Grand Prize Drawing ($500 worth of Boscov’s gift cards).  We’ll be giving out door prizes at least once an hour — plus participants can participate in our BIG Raffle (including our Brentwood Industries pink ‘Barrow of Cheer — participants 21 years of age only) and/or our Basket Auction.
