Attend an event and become inspired!
We have four major events each year: Bowl For Kids' Sake, Wine Crush, Dueling Pianos and Golf Fore Kids' Sake.
Bowl for Kids' Sake
Bowl for Kid's Sake is a peer to peer fundraising event, and one of our most important fundraisers. This year’s event looks different, but the need in our community hasn’t changed. We are committed to keeping our donors and bowlers safe, so we have created two options to participate this year. Click here to learn more!
How It Works
Form a team of up to 4 people – Friends, co-workers, family, or anyone you’ll have fun with!
Collect pledges – Each person collects pledges to participate in the event. Each person is asked to raise a minimum of $100 per person to participate, but you can raise more! The more money you raise, the more children you’re able to impact.
Bowl & have fun! – Come to the event and have a ball! Each event features food, music, games, prizes, raffles, and more! There’s something for everyone.
New for 2021! Ski for Kids' Sake
- Ski For Kids’ Sake will be in a similar format as our Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser. It is a peer-to-peer fundraiser where a participant raises money for BBBS by soliciting pledges from their friends, family and coworkers. We have online portals for fundraising that can be shared via email and social media, as well as paper pledge sheets.
- Challenges make things fun and interesting!
- Participants can ski at their convenience during the ENTIRE month of February!
Wine Crush - Home Edition!
Wine Crush is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Helena & Great Falls’ largest fundraiser of the year, and Helena's premiere mingling and wine tasting event. We made some changes for the safety our of community, and we are now an online auction and virtual event for 2020!
Our online auction will run from May 10- May 16, with daily Facebook livestreams at 6pm to highlight our amazing auction items and friends in the community. On Saturday, May 16 starting at 6pm, we will livestream our virtual gala, hosted by KTVH's chief meteorologist Curtis Grevenitz. We will be showcasing our fabulous trips and other items up for grabs and auctioning off a special trip live on Facebook! You won't want to miss it! All livestreams can be found on our Facebook page!
You can participate by purchasing a ticket from the link above (ticket sales ended 5/12/2020). Each ticket provides you an hors d'oeuvres platter for two (2) from some of Helena's finest chefs, two (2) wine glasses, and wine & beer pairing suggestions. Pick up your platter between 3-5pm on Saturday, May 16 and join us from your couch at 6pm!
We are honored to be part of the Dueling Pianos Nightclub Bash at the Best Western Premier Helena Great Northern Hotel. Our February 2020 event was a fun night of singing along, dancing, comedy and outrageous piano playing! We raised over $16,000 this year - thank you Helena!
We hope to be back in 2021, once again taking on Impact Montana - mark your calendars for Saturday, February 27, 2021! Visit our Facebook event page for updates on this year's event!
