Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Columbia is getting ready for Bowl for Kids’ Sake, and this year’s theme is “Bowl With The Force.”

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters largest annual fundraiser and raises more than $20 million nationally. Bowl for Kids’ Sake will be held March 25 from 2:30-8 pm at AMF Park Lanes in Cayce.

Bowlers can form teams and have fun while helping to raise money for the children and families in Richland and Lexington counties. The event will feature mascots, a themed photo booth, a live band, glow in the dark bowling, a scavenger hunt, dessert and much more. Also, every team participant will receive a “Bowl With The Force” t-shirt to commemorate the event.

“This year’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake theme is definitely a crowd favorite, “Bowl With The Force!,” said Amanda Nemenz, President and CEO. “Whether you grew up watching the original Star Wars movies or are a “Little” in our program enjoying the new movies with your “Big” on a match outing, everyone can get excited to come and share in the galactic surprises this year. As our agency’s largest national fundraiser, we encourage everyone in the community to get involved and we offer many ways to participate, donate, and make a change in a child’s life. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Columbia staff looks forward to celebrating with the children and families we serve, the mentors who give so much more than just their time, and our donors and supporters who make our mission possible year after year.”
