Sign up now for Bowl for Kids’ Sake: Cornhole Edition

Bowl for Kids’ Sake is changing! To keep everyone safe this year, Bowl for Kids’ Sake will be a cornhole event in late summer. Click here for event dates and to sign up.

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.

Each team member pledges to raise a minimum of $60 (or $240 per 4-person team) to participate. Afterwards, join us for a 2 hour cornhole party to celebrate your successful fundraising! You’ll find event dates and steps for getting involved below.
