Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2019

Lace up your bowling shoes and dust off your bowling ball- it’s time for Bowl For Kids’ Sake on Thursday, Mach 7! Bowl For Kids’ Sake, presented by Meredith Corporation, is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa’s (BBBSCI) signature fundraiser and takes place at bowling centers throughout Des Moines for one day only. Bowl For Kids’ Sake is about having fun to help kids. Funds raised go directly towards matching children with carefully-screened, caring Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers.
