Great Times For a Great Cause!

Special Events

In response to our own commitments to reach out to those children who want and need a mentor but have never had the opportunity, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region continues to step up fundraising efforts to prevent any interruption in our goals for growth and expansion and our ability to provide these much-needed services at no-cost to families. All monies raised stay local and enable us to continue fulfilling our mission of providing premier mentoring services, thus improving the lives of children, their families, and our communities.

BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE: Bowl for Kids' Sake is a fun and easy way for you and your company, friends, or family to support the life-changing work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region. You don’t have to be a bowler to participate…everyone wins when helping kids! This event, our agency’s largest fundraiser, is held each year in the spring, at Yough Lanes in Connellsville and Hillview Lanes in Greensburg. We offer a variety of incentive prizes for participants. By supporting Bowl for Kids' Sake, you can Build Something in our community - more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be gained, and improved outlooks on life can be started. Be a fundraiser. Be a donor. Be a bowler.
