Bowl for Kids' Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass’ largest fundraiser, raising significant support annually for life-changing programs that help children in need across central Kentucky. Because of Bowl for Kids' Sake, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be created and improved outlooks on life can be started. Our agency hosts events in Lexington, Mt. Sterling, and Richmond, KY.

There are numerous levels of corporate and individual sponsorship opportunities, and please know that every dollar we raise is critically important to our ability to fulfill our mission. By investing in our program, you partner with us to become what we call, a Defender of Potential.


We'd Love to have your group join us! Please email us at [email protected] or call (859) 231-8181 with any questions you may have about the event.


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.
