Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma is excited to announce the return of our signature fundraising event, Bowl for Kids’ Sake (BFKS), at Andy B’s Tuesday, July 19, at 6 p.m. BFKS is a peer-to-peer style fundraising effort that relies on groups (or teams) of businesses, families, and organizations in the Tulsa community to come together and raise money to benefit our mission of creating and supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Funds raised through this campaign will support our evidence-based mentoring program which matches children (Littles) with caring adult role models (Bigs). It is designed to create positive, measurable outcomes for youth, including educational success, avoidance of risky behaviors, higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships.
Melissa Ramirez, CEO, says: “We provide critical, supportive relationships so that young people thrive. Bowl For Kids’ Sake is one way the community can support our work and the kids we help - and have fun!”
Our 2022 BFKS goal is $70,000. This level of funding ensures continued match support from our Program Specialists, covers operation costs, enrollment processing and community engagement activities.
The campaign is supported by sponsors, teams and individuals. If you are interested in sponsoring this event, contact our Statewide Program Coordinator, Devin Summerfield, at 918.728.7913 or eat0@eau0eav0eaw0. Join the fun by creating a team or raise funds individually at tulsaforkidssake.org
