Bowl for Kids' Sake
Spring at Bowl El Paso
Our Annual Bowl-A-Thon
Bowl, Eat, Have Fun, WIN AWESOME PRIZES!
Teams consist of 5 members…friends, family, co-workers, etc. Team members raise $60 each, and receive 2 hours or 2 games of bowling, food, t-shirt, and bowling shoes. A live DJ keeps the music going and energy up, while giving away great door prizes every few minutes. Fun for the whole family. Kids’ activities available for those too young to bowl. A fun team-builder or morale-booster for companies.
Dance for Kids' Sake
November 4, 2017 at The Plaza Theater
Our 10th Annual Spin on “Dancing with the Stars”
El Pasoans step up as Star Dancers & Judges to raise money & awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring. Dancers set a $3,000 fundraising goal & prep with free dance lessons courtesy of New Horizons Dance Academy, Desert Eagle Productions, El Paso DanceWorks, and Shundo Ballroom Dance Studio. The hard work culminates with a fabulous night out with live music & spectacular dance performances.
Big Magic Breakfast
Winter at the Double Tree Hotel Downtown
A great way to learn about our program. This event is a unique way of introducing our incredible mentoring mission to new potential partners, donors, and volunteers. Table captains fill their seats with people who want to learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters. It is a powerful and inspiring morning featuring testimonies from some of our best mentor/mentee matches. There is no cost to attend, but guests are asked to make a donation at the end of the event.
