Bowl for Kids' Sake: Cornhole Edition

Bowl for Kids' Sake is changing. To keep everyone safe this year, Bowl for Kids' Sake will be a cornhole event in late summer.

Teams of 4 (new this year) will face off on the cornhole pitch, outdoors and socially distant as needed. The sport is changing, but the spirit and mission of the event remains the same: you'll still have fun celebrating the money you raised to support one-to-one mentoring in Southwest Michigan.

Each team member pledges to raise a minimum of $60 (or $240 per 4-person team) to participate. Afterwards, join us for a 2 hour cornhole party (details below) to celebrate your successful fundraising!

 

YOUR FUNDRAISING MATCHED BY PNC BANK

Are you new to Bowl for Kids' Sake? Presenting sponsor, PNC Bank welcomes you and has issued a special matching gift to double your impact.

If you haven't participated in BFKS before, every dollar you raise will be matched by a generous gift from PNC until we reach our goal of $2,500 from fundraisers new to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Your donors' gifts will be doubled!

For every $1 you raise, BBBS will get $2! When you raise $60, PNC will match it, turning your impact into $120 until new Bowl for Kids' Sake fundraisers have raised $2,500! Please note, the matching gift does not count towards Super Team status.

BBBS will make an announcement when the matching challenge has been met. Start your fundraising early to take advantage- these funds will go fast!

Use these fundraising tips to help amp up your team's fundraising efforts.
