Bowl for Kids Sake is a FUN way to make an impact on the lives of children and youth right here in Orillia and District!

fun event where children, families, co-workers, businesses and the community come together to raise funds and celebrate the importance of mentoring.  Form a team, collect pledges and bowl online….it is that simple!

This year we are coming together (virtually) to celebrate our 40th Anniversary in Pictou County – and we are doing it in STYLE! Create a home/backyard alley, and your craziest hat! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Your Task: Raise money to ignite the full potential of Orillia and District kids!

Impact: When a child has a mentor, the odds they will be emotionally, socially & physically healthy increases dramatically…and when we have healthy young people in our communities, everyone benefits. #BiggerTogether #IgnitePotential

Creating a new mentoring match costs roughly $1750. If everyone on your team raises $150, your team could raise more than half the cost of a match. Aim for the $250 level, and you could be Matchmakers!

Since money invested in BBBS programs generates an average social return on investment of $23 for every dollar invested, the money you raise will have huge impact in our community.

We look forward to celebrating your fundraising success on Bowl for Kids Sake online May 28th!

Get our your party hats, Bristol board, ribbons, paper towel rolls, glue, scissors, and paint. Have fun spending time with your family creating the alley and hats. Then join us for the party!
