Remaining Bowl for Kids' Sake Events Now Virtual

We've made the difficult decision to cancel all previously postponed in-person Bowl for Kids’ Sake events for 2020, which includes the remainder of our Fayette County public events, as well as events for The Brokerage - Real Estate AdvisorsLeadership Lexington, Montgomery County, and Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass. However, we’d still love to celebrate with all of our teams and are planning a virtual event on Facebook and YouTube for May 17th! Since we’re over $25,000 away from reaching our goal, we hope bowlers with canceled events will consider re-joining us as we attempt to raise $115,000 to defend the potential of youth in Central Kentucky.

DONATE AND FEED A FAMILY IN NEED: Thanks to a generous matching gift challenge by Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe, your donation can have an even bigger impact when we need it most. For every $50 raised through Bowl for Kids’ Sake from now through May 28th, Taziki’s will donate 5 meals to families in our program (up to $10,000/1,000 meals)!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass has been serving the youth of Central Kentucky since 1957. We’ve served thousands of kids over the last six decades, but there are many more who are still waiting for someone to stand in their corner - and over 200 who are waiting for a Big right here in Central Kentucky.

We don’t create potential… we inspire it; we empower it; we ignite it – and we couldn’t do it without YOU. We are not saviors, we are allies – each and every one of us. Together, we clear a path to their biggest possible futures. Together, we are Defenders of Potential.

Learn how you can defend a child's potential.

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass, young males of color make up more than half of our waiting list, many of whom have been waiting for a Big Brother for more than two years. They come to us with the hopes of finding a mentor who will inspire them to reach beyond their adversity.
