"B" For Kids' Sake

Bowl For Kids' Sake (BFKS) is one of the longest running fundraisers for Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County (BBBS). Due to COVID and to ensure all of our participants feel safe and comfortable, we are giving BFKS a new twist in 2021! As you register & create a profile and/or team to raise funds for BBBS, YOU have the flexibility to choose your "B" Adventure at the fundraising finish line! The options are to BOWL or play BAGS (cornhole).

    630 N, State Rte 31, Crystal Lake, IL 60012>

    • May 2021 – June 2021  

    This year’s “B” Adventures are:

    • Bowl For Kids’ Sake: vouchers to a local bowling alley
      • 2 hours of bowling
      • A large piece of pizza & pop per voucher
      • Shoe rental included
      • Flexibility to use the bowling voucher during open play June – October 31, 2021


    • Bags for Kids’ Sake: Bags Party (outdoor with a group)
      • Bags Tournament
      • Food and pop
      • T-shirt
      • 50-50 Raffle, Carnival Games, & Dunk Tank!

    Even though the name is slightly different, our goal is the same – to raise funds for BBBS mentoring programs that impact hundreds of kids in McHenry County. Each individual has a minimum goal of $75 which gets you to your “B” Adventure, however raising more than the minimum has lasting, impactful effects on children’s lives throughout our community.

    This event is family friendly! One family member can register the entire group and are asked to set a minimum fundraising goal of $175 in total*.

    *The $175 Family fundraising goal is determined for 2 adults and 2 children. For every additional child, we ask you to bump up the goal another $25 to help cover the costs of the event itself.
