For the first time in Big Brothers Big Sisters Services’ 40-year history, its signature fundraising event, Bowl for Kids’ Sake, is expanding to Kernersville’s Countryside Lanes.

In Kernersville, the event is set for March 9 from 4-6 p.m. It will feature a Sports Theme. Bowlers are encouraged to wear their favorite team jerseys and dress them up or come in costume as their favorite sports figure. Prizes will be given to the bowlers, and there is even an extra incentive to raise money early. Every bowler is asked to raise at least $100, but those who raise $250 by Valentine’s Day will be entered into a drawing for four tickets and a parking pass to the Wake Forest vs. Notre Dame basketball game.

“Kernersville has long had a big role in our agency, and more than 400 children have been served,” said Shawan Gabriel, CEO and president of Big Brothers Big Sisters Services and resident of Kernersville.

David Arnold, former Little Brother, of Yount Insurance and past president of Kernersville Kiwanis, is serving in a leadership role for the Bowl for Kids’ Sake expansion.

“My life would be very different today if my Big Brother hadn’t been there for me,” Arnold said. “I’m participating in Bowl for Kids’ Sake because I want to support the important work that Big Brothers Big Sisters Services is doing.”

In Winston-Salem, Bowl for Kids’ Sake will be held March 2 from 4-6 p.m. and March 3 from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. at AMF Lanes on Jonestown Road. Teams should sign up at
