Join Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Fond du Lac County, February 28 & 29 at Parkway Lanes in Fond du Lac and March 1 at the Plaza Bowl in Ripon for their biggest fundraiser of the year!  This event is going to be the bee’s knees!

First, you need to “know your onions” about BFKS. You need to grab your gang (some family members, co-workers or friends) and form a team (you do not need to be a good bowler!!) Then, get yourself registered online at If you prefer more of a 1920’s feel, print out a pledge sheet from the website or request a pledge sheet from the office. Then proceed to collect the moula (yep, money!).

There are prizes for bowlers who raise the most moula including: a chance to win a 50” smart tv, an iPad or $100 in cash.  Dig out your suit (zoot, jazz or pinstriped) or your flapper dress, feather boas and beads and be ready to shake your sequins.  For all of you Oliver Twist’s out there start spiffing up on your dance steps. You will be judged for best ‘style’ as you dance to the sound of the Kenny James Duo on Friday night and North Soul on Saturday night.

Join Big Brothers Big Sisters for a roaring good time where we can all raise money to help local kids. By being part of the BBBS Bowl for Kids’ Sake, you will make a positive, long-lasting impact on children in your community. Whether you start a team, become a sponsor, or make a donation, your efforts ensure that more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can begin and improved outlooks on life can be started.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fond du Lac County is a United Way Agency that assists children with social, emotional and character development through one-to-one mentoring relationships with caring adults.  It is the only program of its kind serving all of Fond du Lac County and the northern portion of Dodge County.  The agency matches at risk children, many who live at or below poverty level, with a Big Brother, Sister, Couple or Family in a community or school based program.  Children aged 6 through 13 can enroll in the program with a parent or guardian approval.  Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license for the community-based program, 16 years old for the school-based program.

Let’s get the ball rolling! (No pun intended!)
