Spins Bowl – 2911 E. Waterloo Rd, Akron, 44312

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a popular fundraiser held by BBBS affiliates across the country, and we’re bringing it back this year to our tri-county service area — after an 8-year hiatus!

Grab your friends, family members or work colleagues, form your teams, and let’s gather to bowl — for the kids! 

And the best part of the event? Our Littles (and their Bigs and families!) bowl too, so we’re all sharing in the fun! It’s a super special community and we’re excited to welcome you.

And, yet another awesome feature of this year’s event:  YOU can join in the fundraising fun by setting up teams and challenges on this platform, and sharing it far and wide! You’ll be supporting our 1:1 mentoring work and helping to raise awareness about our critical mission along the way. For team or individual fundraising, we’ve set the following goals/minimums for our challengers:

  • Individuals = $50 minimum goal
  • Teams = $250 minimum goal 

We’re guessing our fundraisers will blow these numbers out of the water — so think BIG and set your goal as high as you like! Game on! (Tips and tricks for huge success will be shared after registration!)

The more bowlers and teams, the more is shared about the IMPACT of this longstanding, powerful program. It can and does change the path of a child’s life. Together we will ignite, defend and empower potential.  



Participation from these businesses and individuals helps us plan and present the return of Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2024! Your partnership means the world to us — and our Littles!


Sign up to volunteer at one of our many great events and help make this program more impactful for children in need.
