NEW CASTLE —
Locals took to the lanes Saturday to help keep kids off the streets.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lawrence County hosted its 18th annual Bowl For Kids Sake fundraiser at Colonial Lanes. All money raised at the event stays in Lawrence County.
The event featured bowling, music, games and refreshments, and the top male and female bowlers each received a trophy.
There was also a “Single Frame Showdown” pitting the top three fundraisers in each time slot against each other.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of America began as a small organization in the early 1900s. It is now one of the most widely known nonprofit organizations in the nation and is the premiere evidence-based mentoring program.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters organization opened in Lawrence County in 1994 and holds 60 active matches. It has provided volunteer mentors to more than 500 children in the community.
