 BFKS 2012 logo web  We are nearing the end of our Bowl for Kids Sake Campaign- with 80% of our targeted goal raised! Please know that all participating Teams are an important force for the revenue we have generated so far...!

Team Members are able to continue fundraising right through to the close of our season which will wrap up on April 11th. So if you were hoping for a bit more time to reach your minimum Team goal or want to be eligible for the prize levels offered through our National organization, you still have some time left.

Were you unable to join us this year and bowl? You can still make a donation towards our goal via our bowling website.

Thank You!

We thank the Region of York for their support of our Valuing Diversity - Inclusive Mentoring project.  Funding through this project helps to fund a range of programming and activities including: In-School mentoring, The Club, and Go Girls! Healthy Bodies Healthy Mind.  These programs engage both teen and senior mentors, while reaching children and youth from diverse cultural backgrounds reflective of our region.


Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident young person is a remarkable thing.
