2023 Bowl for Kids’ Sake a Success!

On Sunday, March 12, close to 200 Bigs, Littles, families, friends, and supporters came out to our Bowl for Kids’ Sake bowl-a-thon fundraiser to benefit children throughout the Capital Region who need a mentor. Participants enjoyed bowling, camaraderie, and friendly competition all while raising the funds to sustain our local programs and match more children in one-to-one mentoring relationships.


Bowl for Kid’s Sake is our largest team fundraiser annually and a nationally-recognized Big Brothers Big Sisters event. We are grateful to our Capital Region community members–including our corporate partners: Adirondack Beverage; C&S Companies Foundation; Center for Internet Security; Herzog Law Firm; Hinman Straub; NY State Industries for the Disabled; Noble Gas; OrthoNY; Spring Street Financial; Teal, Becker, and Chiaramonte; and UHY Advisors–for supporting the life-changing work of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Please join us in sending a BIG THANK YOU to all of our participants and sponsors!
