Bowl For Kids' Sake 2017

Ahoy, me hearties! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central New Mexico has started raisin’ booty t' provide nurturin' and mentorin' relationships fer th’ lads and lasses in our community. We be searchin’ for crews of buccaneers to help us pillage some pirate’s gold and then parrrty wit’ us at this year’s Fool’s Gold Treasure Bowl on April Fools’ Day.

For over 40 years, Bowl for Kids' Sake has supported Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies throughout the country serving as our premier fundraising "Thank You" Party. After raising awareness and funds for a few months, we thank our volunteer fundraisers with a bowling party at Isleta Fun Connection.

This year, the swashbucklers are walkin’ th’ plank. Gather yer grog and yer gumbo and set yer compass to April 1, where fer th' sake of th' wee minnows, we gather treasure and feast!

"If he had shown indifference as a master, I have no doubt I should have returned the complement as a pupil. He gave me no such excuse, and each of us did the other justice."

-Charles Dickens
