Gearing up for Bowl For Kids Sake 2011

Can you believe it is time to start thinking about Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2011? This campaign’s fundraising efforts are already off to a great start! DPS Penn is joining us as the Presenting Sponsor, and the BFKS 2011 website  is now available for registrations! This site has some exciting new features. You can create your own shortened URL, share your goals with your Facebook and Twitter pages, and print and sell bowling pins for $1.00 to make your fundraising efforts easier!!!   

The first twenty individuals to register and raise $100 by December 15, 2010 will be entered into a drawing to win one of two $50 gift certificates to the big Burrito Restaurant Group (includes Casbah, Eleven, Kaya, Mad Mex, Soba and Umi). What are you waiting for? Click here to visit the Bowl for Kids’ Sake website, to register or join a team. 

In addition to the new website features, we also have great top prizes to give away!! The top two fundraising teams will win a dinner for themselves and a guest at Alla Famiglia or Spoon. The top individual fundraiser will win an iPad, and all other individuals raising over $250 will be entered to win an Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect. The more money each individual raises, the more chances they will have to win the prize. Donations must be submitted before April 15, 2011, to be considered for all three prizes. Please help us by specifying which participant should receive credit for offline donations. Our board Bowl for Kids’ Sake Co-Chair will choose the winning ticket for the Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect on April 15, 2011. All board and staff members will be marked with an asterisk (*) before their name, and are ineligible to win these top prizes. 

In order to make this year even better, we would like to create a BFKS Committee. Your input and expertise as a major contributor is important to make improvements to the 2011 events. The BFKS Committee will be asked to spread the word about Bowl for Kids’ Sake, create a team of their own, and recruit other teams, sponsors and local business to become involved in BFKS 2011.  

If you are interested in sharing your ideas and insights by joining this committee, please contact Kristina Elias at or call 412-204-1225 by December 15, 2010. We plan to host our first BFKS Committee meeting at the beginning of January.     

We hope you join us again and help us toward another record-breaking year.
