The largest fundraising event of its kind in North America, The Scotiabank Bowl for Big Brothers Classic will take over bowling centres across the Lower Mainland in April 2017. Over 1,300 event participants and 150 teams will raise pledges in support of Big Brothers’ mentoring programs for vulnerable children and celebrate with an exciting evening of bowling and activities. When you raise a minimum of $60, you are giving back to a great cause while having fun with a group of colleagues, friends, and/or family.
There are over 20 events to choose from in April 2017. Sign up, put a team of five or more, pick an event date and have fun! Take a peek at our event schedule here.
It’s up to you! We have partnered with bowling centres across the Lower Mainland, including Burnaby, Richmond and Vancouver. See what dates are available at your preferred bowling centre here.
Mentoring programs help kids reach their full potential by heightening self-esteem and enabling them to make healthy decisions. Your participation in The 2017 Scotiabank Bowl for Big Brothers Classic helps match children with positive adult role models who act as mentors in their lives.
When children are emotionally, socially, and physically healthy, everyone in the community benefits.
This event enables Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver to provide one-to-one, group, and in-school mentoring programs for over 1,000 children each year free of charge. The presence of an additional caring adult in a child’s life can curb issues like bullying, crime, and even break the cycle of poverty for local families. By signing up a team, bowling or donating to the campaign, you’re joining us in building stronger communities, one child at a time.
