A longstanding tradition.
Tim Hortons Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake (BFKS) is our signature National event, and represents our single biggest fundraising campaign of the year and makes up 25% of our annual operating budget. It has been a tradition in Niagara for nearly 30 years!
We ask people to create a team of 4-6 bowlers, and pledge a minimum of $50 each to participate in the event. There are numerous fundraising incentive levels that we hope our team members can reach, each with their own unique prizes and IMPACT to the agency! At the night of the event, bowlers get 2 hours of lane time to kick-back, have fun and bowl some strikes for a good cause! Along the way, we have prizes for top team, top fundraiser, best dressed team and much more!
Every year there is a unique theme, and this year’s theme is ZOMBIES! We encourage all teams to dress up for the theme – your team may even win a prize! The Tim Hortons BFKS is a perfect opportunity for businesses and individuals to help children in Niagara. Friends, family, co-workers, local businesses, politicians and media put teams together and collect pledges and online donations. The teams then gather at Parkway Lanes to bowl and have fun in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
We’re here to help.
We know you have other responsibilities in your life and need to balance the time you can give to our cause. If you nd yourself overwhelmed and unable to follow through, let us know, and our BFKS Team can help you get the support you need!
