Here at Heart of Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters, we wouldn't be able to do what we do without the generous support of our community. Without state or government funding, our biggest source of income comes from our agency fundraisers.
Supporting our Events, Supports our agency.
Bowl for Kids' Sake
Around the nation, Bowl for Kids' Sake is the largest fundraiser for most Big Brothers Big Sisters' agencies. For Heart of Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters, raising $100 gets you two games of bowling and shoe rental, pizza, and a Bowl for Kids' Sake t-shirt. The more money you raise, the more prizes you get!
