#Game4KidsETN | #Bowl4KidsETN

The Game has changed, but you can still help us Defend their Future.

This year an invisible enemy forced us to cut short many of our Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraising opportunities, leaving us $100,000 short of our goal.

Yet BBBS-ETN remains uniquely positioned to provide proactive outreach and consistency of connection to our area’s most marginalized families, and we need your continued fundraising to help us.

We’re holding a 24-hour gaming marathon on Sunday, June 28! Will you join us in that mission?



Check out the stream on
YouTube, Facebook,

We know the shift from bowling to digital presentation isn’t the clearest to see, so we have a few suggestions of ways you can pivot your pages.

Stream you own stream. – If you’re already a streamer, you can target your own stream to fundraise for BBBS-ETN. Various platforms have different methods, and we’d be happy to help you set it up.

Play your own game. – Create your personal fundraising page using the PLAY link above and set up your own criteria. Want to play poker with your friends and donate your winnings? Deal yourselves in! Want to play Monopoly and agree to donate the equivalent in real-world funds? Roil the dice! Want to have friends donate for every star you capture in Super Mario Galaxy? Press start and see how far you can get! How do you want to help us win? Then focus on creating your personal fundraising page and sending it out far and wide.

Need help fundraising? We have a few more ideas from our 2020 tips.

Watch the team. – 24 hours is a long time! Hang out with the BBBS-ETN community online and keep us (digital) company.


Sponsorships help ensure 100% of the funds you raise go to our mission of providing professionally supported one-to-one mentorships. They cover the costs of things like digital switching software and green screens. Want your message as part of the stream? We can make that happen! If you are interested, email Noah McBrayer Jones or call 865.523.9455.
