May 5, 2017 Cinco De Mayo! 


Our Annual Bowl For Kid's Sake campaign, most popularly known as BFKS, is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County (BBBSIC) annual fund raiser supporting our programs. BFKS is a fun-filled event that provides companies and organizations the opportunity to show their support by raising dollars and awareness to support BBBSIC.

This event is more than just another fund raiser. BFKS presents a fantastic opportunity for a company, organization or group of friends to build team spirit while at the same time helping some of the children that need us most in the Island County area.

Here is how it works:  First, a team needs a captain.  If you'd like to be a Team Captain, email our Adminstrative Assistant,  or call us at (360) 279-0644 and we'll get you set up with all the materials you need.

Second, each team has five bowlers; a Team Captain and four team members.  Each team member is encouraged to raise $200 and at least $100 to be eligible for our Bowl for Kids Sake T-shirt. (It's easy, just ask 10 of your friends for $20.00 each!)

On the day of Bowl for Kids Sake, you and your team gets to bowl and eat pizza for free, and enter for chances to to win raffle and door prizes...all the while helping Big Brothers Big Sisters match kids and caring adults.

Pick your bowling hour! 5:30 PM or 7:00 PM

Other ways to participate are through Sponsorship which includes your logo or name listed on the back of the t-shirts. 

Be a Lane Sponsor for $300

Be a Gutter Ball Sponsor for $500

Be a Strike Sponsor for $1000

Please contact us for more information on other Sponsorship benefits. (360) 279-0644

Festival of Trees Gala is a holiday tradition on Whidbey Island, so popular it sells out quickly. This entertaining formal event which features exquisitely decorated trees and wreaths, a live and silent auction and delicious dinner, is our major fundraiser and benefits children in the community by supporting them in matched one-to-one mentoring relationships with positive role-models. The Festival of Trees is a community celebration designed to brighten the holiday season while brightening the futures of children in our community.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County presents the 18th Annual Festival of Trees
