About Special Events/Fundraisers
Special events are one of the ways Big Brothers Big Sisters funds our programs. Below is a description of all the events taking place throughout the year.
April - Bowl for Kids’ Sake
This is a fundraiser that anyone can do! Get four or five friends together and start a bowling team. Each team is asked to commit to raising $500 on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters by asking family, friends, co-workers, etc. to donate to the team. Bowl-a-thon days are scheduled at Professor Bowl West on Fridays and Saturdays, and teams are invited to participate to celebrate the money raised by all the teams.
August - Toast & Roast
This event takes place at the Doubletree Hotel and includes a reception, dinner, live auction, silent auction, and program. Each year a different honoree is selected by a committee and four of his/her closest friends Toast & Roast him/her during the evening. Toast & Roast is the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year.
