2014 Bowl For Kids

A Tribute to Big Brother Jamie Schou

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County is looking for bowlers and sponsors for the 2014 Bowl For Kids Sake Challenge (BFKS), held at Bowl Incline, 920 Southwood Blvd, Incline Village, Oct. 18, 3-8 p.m. The Beach Bowl-Catching the Mentoring Wave gives teams an opportunity to dress up in beach attire. This year's event is a tribute to Jamie Schou, a Big who passed away this last year. He was instrumental in the success of Bowl for Kids Sake, and a Big Brother to his Little Brother, Sam, for five years. "When they were matched, Sam was 8 years old, and really small and quiet. He had moved to the U.S. with his mom from Russia, and was still getting used to a new environment," said Peggy Martin, community development director for BBBS in Truckee. "Jamie really made a difference in his life, even when Jamie was diagnosed with cancer. He was a huge supporter of Bowl for Kids' Sake because he truly believed that mentoring made a difference and had a positive impact in kid's lives."

Each team is made up of a maximum of five bowlers, with a minimum donation of $25 per bowler, which includes shoes and billiards. Teams can choose from three different bowling times, each an hour and 15 minutes long. There will be prizes for the top fundraiser, best team costume, and a silent auction. All funds raised support mentoring programs for North Shore Lake Tahoe and Truckee youth.
