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 in July 2020 at the Belt Entertainment Center. 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 cosmic 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 our previous event below!
