BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE

For more than 40 years, Bowl for Kids’ Sake has been the premier fundraising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies across the nation. It’s Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska’s largest fundraiser of the year. You don’t have to bowl a perfect game or even know how to bowl… you just have a good time and have fun with friends!

Because of donors like you, through Bowl For Kids' Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be professionally matched, more friendships can be created, and improved outlooks on life can be started.

2020 LaneWars Details

A lot has happened over the last couple of weeks — these are unprecedented times. From all of us at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska, we sincerely hope that you and your family are safe and healthy. 

As we navigate these times, we remain focused on how programs like ours help combat mental health issues such as loneliness, depression, anxiety, and self-esteem. We are checking in with our Bigs and Littles on a regular basis and are providing support and resources on how they can stay connected and continue to build a trusting friendship during this time. We are also rallying behind the parents in our program as they face their own challenges as a result of this crisis. You make this possible. Thank you! 

LaneWars, Bowl For Kids’ Sake 2020, is going virtual!

During this time of uncertainty and isolation, we want to connect and celebrate your fundraising efforts by providing a fun outlet that encourages connection and simultaneously supports Alaska’s youth. 

Join us throughout the week of Saturday, April 18 to Saturday, April 25.
