Presented by: The Youth Opportunity Foundation


Strikes and Spares for Students and Scholars

The Big Bowl is an event where participants demonstrate both their philanthropic skills and their athletic prowess. Teams of 4-6 bowlers will compete for the ultimate prize, The Big Bowl Bowl (picture the Stanly Cup of Bowling). $300 will get you and your friends a bowling lane, shoe rental, food and drink specials, prizes and a reason to get a night out on the town for a fantastic cause – mentoring and educational programs for some great local kids!

Costumes are definitely encouraged... we're giving away keg parties for the Top 3 costumed teams, and the winner receives one of the more ridiculous trophies known to man.

Many bowlers and teams will have a history with Youth Opportunity Foundation through our Mustache 4 Cash October fundraiser. You might not have grown a 'stache for a few years, – and that's okay. This is your chance to continue helping out a great cause without a month-long commitment! And for those of you who are just learning about Youth Opportunity Foundation... Welcome to the family!
