Bowl for Kids' Sake 2017!

SATURDAY, MARCH 4TH, 2017

ACADIANA LANES

LAFAYETTE, LA 70506

It's that time of year again!  Bowl for Kids' Sake is right around the corner!  Don't miss this opportunity to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana by participating in this family-friendly fundraising event!

To participate in BFKS, a TEAM CAPTAIN puts together a team of 5 (including him/herself).  Each team member raises a minimum donation of $40 ($25 for students).  *It is highly encouraged that team members try to raise more than the minimum donation by asking friends and family to donate to their team. 

On the day of the event, teams join us at BFKS to bowl in one of three bowling shifts (9 am, 11 am, and 1pm).  Team members bring their cash donations to the event to be turned in at check-in.  Prizes are awarded to bowlers bringing in the most donations per shift and one grand prize is awarded to the bowler with the highest overall donations. 

Teams are encouraged to make their team unique by choosing a team theme or bowling in costume!  Let your imaginations run wild!  The wilder the better!  We love being bowled over by teams with great spirit!

ACTIVITY IDEA: Movies in the Parc

Downtown Lafayette's Movies in the Parc presented by Cox offers family- friendly, movie events featuring crowd favorites under the stars! Saturday, October 8th, Hocus Pocus comes to Parc International! No Halloween is complete without watching this cult classic that’s great for kids of all ages. Gates open at 200 Garfield Street at 6pm and the movie starts at dusk.

Kids activities will keep the little ones busy before the movies. The best part of Movies in the Parc is that kids don’t have to sit still during the movie. Parc International is gated, so they are free to spend energy, (so they sleep well at night!) We get it. So bring their wagons, blankets and creature comforts for a night with the whole family!

Admission is just $3 and free for children 5 and under. Food and beverages will be available on-site for purchase! Parking is available at Parc-Auto du Centreville at Polk and Vermilion Streets and metered spots are free on Saturdays Downtown!

**No Pets Allowed**

Hocus Pocus:
After moving to Salem, Mass., teenager Max Dennison explores an abandoned house with his sister Dani and their new friend, Allison. After dismissing a story Allison tells as superstitious, Max accidentally frees a coven of evil witches who used to live in the house. Now, with the help of a magical cat, the kids must steal the witches' book of spells to stop them from becoming immortal by sucking the lives out of the children of Salem.
