Bowl For Kids' Sake
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa held its 2019 Bowl For Kids’ Sake, presented by Meredith Corporation, on Thursday, March 7th at bowling centers across the Greater Des Moines area. This year’s event was a BIG success, thanks to our sponsors, donors and bowling teams! Bowling locations included Val Lanes, Merle Hay Lanes, Great Escape and Bowlerama; and bowling sessions were hosted by emcees including Steve Berry, Scott Siepker, Lou Sipolt, Jackie Schmillen, Shane Stark, Chris Cox and Miss Greater Des Moines, Bailey Hodson. Many thanks go out to all those who made this event possible.
We are proud to report that 748 bowlers participated in the event this year, raising close to $170,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa! The money raised from Bowl For Kids’ Sake helps us carry out the work of carefully matching children with caring adult mentors and providing ongoing support to the child, volunteer mentor, and child’s family. The generous support of this event makes it possible for us to continue providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
