Fundraising Events

Bowl For Kids’ Sake – This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and guaranteed the most fun you will ever have in rented shoes! This event will take place on July 26th, 2019 at the Belt Entertainment. To participate, get a group of friends together to raise some funds for BBBS St. Joe. To reward your team for their fundraising efforts, we throw you a bowling party complete with pizza and beer (or soda). All money raised from this event helps support our current matches and helps us make new matches for the 40 (plus) children on the wait list. Check out our recap video from last years event below!
