“Playmakers” Invited to Bowl For Kids’ Sake

One of the largest bowling events in the area returns this spring. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Salina is bringing Bowl For Kids’ Sake.

Bowl For Kids’ Sake will take over The Alley in Salina on Saturday, April 6th.

According to the organization, this annual event, known for its camaraderie and community engagement, aims to raise $100,000 to support mentoring programs for local youth.

“Bowl For Kids’ Sake is more than just bowling; is an opportunity for individuals and teams to come together to support a great cause,” said Amanda Otto, CEO. “Bowl For Kids’ Sake raises critical funds to support our one-to-one mentoring programs. Currently the wait list of youth in need of a mentor has reached 100. The need for youth mentorship, in our community, is at an all-time high. The proceeds from events like Bowl For Kids’ Sake are instrumental in creating and supporting safe mentoring relationships for area youth.”

This year’s theme, “Playmakers,” embodies the spirit of sportsmanship and highlights the transformative power of supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Salina. By contributing to our cause, you play a crucial role in empowering the youth of our community, enabling them to achieve remarkable victories in each of their personal journeys.
