Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine invites local businesses, organizations and individuals to sign up to Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2019. Local bowling events will be held April 4-11 in Northport and Belfast, and April 25-27 in Waldoboro and Rockport. Teams raise funds for youth mentoring programs in Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties and then come out to celebrate their success at Bowl for Kids’ Sake.

Special events manager Shawn Doll said Bowl for Kids’ Sake, presented by Hannaford Supermarkets and Camden National Bank, is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine’s largest fundraising event, funding more than half of the agency’s operating budget that serves seven counties throughout Midcoast, eastern and central Maine.

Businesses and individuals can register a team online at, select a desired bowling date and time and create team and personal fundraising pages where supporters can make electronic donations.  Bowlers can also download pledge forms to collect donations to bring to the event. Teams that raise $500 or more will receive 2019 Bowl for Kids’ Sake t-shirts at the event and all bowlers will participate in hourly prizes.

Local businesses can support Bowl for Kids’ Sake by becoming sponsors, donating prizes and registering teams to participate. Event volunteers are also welcome.
