Thank you PNC Bank: Bowl for Kids’ Sake Presenting Sponsor

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is almost here! It’s not too late to get involved!

Later this month and in September, Big Brothers Big Sisters supporters will gather to raise money for local mentoring through Bowl for Kids’ Sake: Cornhole Edition.

Teams of 4 will face off on the cornhole pitch, outdoors and socially distant as needed. The sport is changing, but the spirit and mission of the event remains the same: you’ll still have fun celebrating the money you raised to support one-to-one mentoring in Southwest Michigan.


Presenting Sponsor, PNC Bank issued a special matching gift challenge to those who haven’t participated in Bowl for Kids’ Sake: every dollar you raise will be matched until we reach our goal of $2,500 from fundraisers new to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Your donors’ gifts will be doubled! Thank you, PNC, for your generosity and partnership!

For every $1 you raise, BBBS will get $2! When you raise $60, PNC will match it, turning your impact into $120 until new Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraisers have raised $2,500!

Just $329 in the match remains! Sign up today, as a new fundraiser to BBBS and double your impact!


Big Brothers Big Sisters creates and supports one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. Each time a child is paired with a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters, lives begin to change. These one-to-one relationships are built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential.

In 2020, despite the limitations and challenges of such an unprecedented year:

  • 95% of Littles reported stronger relationships
  • 71% of Littles reported stronger relationships
  • 92% of Littles performed better in school

These outcomes are made possible, in part, by the generous support of sponsors like PNC Bank, and by people like you.
