The Cause

Empowering Youth Through Mentorship

The Impact

This event enables Big Brother and Big Sisters of St. Catharines, Thorold & District to provide one-to-one, group, and in-school mentoring programs for over 1,000 children each year free of charge. The presence of an additional caring and positive adult role model in a child’s life can curb negative issues, help kids reach their full potential by heightening self-esteem and enable them to make better decisions in their life.

By signing up a team, bowling or donating to Bowl for Kids Sake, you’re joining us in building stronger communities, one child at a time.
