Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County to Hold ‘Bowl for Kids’ Sake’

Feb 13, 2019

Plan to have an active evening for a good cause at the annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake event on Saturday, March 16 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County.

The night out is held from 5 to 7 p.m. only a short trek to Toms River at Playdrome Lanes, and the children who are helped come from Southern Ocean County as well as northern towns.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a Big Brothers Big Sisters nationwide event and one of the biggest ways to draw attention to its life-changing mentoring programs, organizers say.

“Funds raised from this event help to put caring mentors into the lives of children, and hope into their future.”

Those who attend don’t have to be good bowlers, just want to have fun and help Ocean County kids. Everyone is welcome: individuals, families, senior citizens and students.

“So, whether you’re a non-bowler, or someone who gets a strike every time, you will have a great time while making a big difference for the children in your Ocean County community,” organizers invite.

To participate each bowler is asked to make a $30 donation. Bowlers will have two games to bowl. A 50/50 raffle is among the evening’s activities.

Full details are available at the website bbsoc.org. or those who have questions may call 732-505-3400.

BBBSOC is a registered 501(c) (3) organization formed in 1997 that serves the needs of Ocean County children (“Littles”) facing adversity. The agency provides a carefully-matched mentor (“Big”) in a supervised mentoring relationship.

“This one-to-one mentoring approach has been proven to have a positive impact on the social and educational development of children, and BBBSOC’s annual outcome surveys support these findings,” the organization said.  —M.S.
