How To Get Started

Big Brother Ken Wederski and Little Brother Larry Big Brother Shane Monroe and Team Horne
It’s not about bowling.
It’s about helping kids!

  1. FORM A TEAM AND CALL TO REGISTER at 409-763-4638 for one of the three nights of bowling in August. A team is 4-5 members;  friends, coworkers, family, etc. who want to participate in the bowling event and raise money to help children in the Big Brothers Big sisters program.
  2. RAISE MONEY FOR BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS – Each team member raises at least $75 by collecting pledges (donations) to support BBBS through church, companies, local associations, schools, families, or other groups or individuals and help your team win the Traveling Trophy and 2012 Bragging Rites by raising the most money! You may submit cash or checks. Credit card donations can be made online prior to the bowling event.
  3. JOIN THE BOWLING PARTY – Come out in August to join the bowling party in Texas City for two free games of bowling and a free customized BFKS 2012 t-shirt!
