Bowl for Kids’ Sake is the agencies’ longest running special event that raises funds to support children in our mentoring program. The concept for the event is simple. A Team Captain asks 4 or 5 family members, friends or co-workers to join their bowling team. Each team member is asked to raise $100.00 to support the children we serve. That’s just five pledges of $20 each! You can collect credit card donations by registering online at bbbsmilwaukee.org/BFKS2022
