Bowl 4 Kids’ Sake returns this year | News, Sports, Jobs
One of the many events that the pandemic canceled in the summer of 2020 was Big Brothers and Big Sisters (BBBS) Bowl 4 Kids’ Sake.
Although it was canceled just weeks before it was supposed to take place last summer, this summer’s event is scheduled for June 25-26 at Wayward Social, 1101 S. Sixth St.
“We are delighted to find everyone together”, Heart of Iowa Big Brothers and Big Sisters executive director Lynne Carroll said. “It’s another chance to get together.
There are four sessions for this year’s event, the first being 7-9 p.m. on June 25, and the other three are 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on June 26.
Carroll said attendees should come prepared with masks, but they won’t be required to be worn by those who are vaccinated. It is recommended that non-vaccinated people wear masks.
Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control will be followed during the event, according to Carroll.
This year’s donation goal for Bowl 4 Kids’ Sake is $ 25,000 which will be used in matchmaking between volunteers and children throughout the year. This includes providing things for fun activities between volunteers and children that might not be possible otherwise.
Teams will be made up of four to six players, with a minimum donation per player of $ 55. The event includes two rounds of bowling and shoe rental.
Once the registration form is completed or brought to the BBBS office, 31 S. First St., team captains can collect the Heart of Iowa BBBS bowling and fundraising packages.
Team registration for the event must be completed before June 14th. Teams can pay their donation on the registration date or when they are due to bowling at the event. If a team does not register by June 14, they may still be able to participate in the event, provided there is sufficient space.
There is one more opportunity for the Kids’ Sake Bowl 4. Applications to become a sponsor close on June 8. To sponsor the event, call 641-753-6370.

According to its website, Heart of Iowa BBBS’s mission is, “To deliver a positive, inclusive program that focuses less on specific problems after they arise, and more on meeting the most basic developmental needs of young people.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters program targets children as young as 6 and through high school and tries to match them with a mentor.
