Bowl for Kids' Sake 2014

The 26th annual event brought the community together.
Superheroes, kids and families headed to Western Bowl for the  26th annual Bowl for Kids' Sake.

The event is the largest fundraiser for big brother big sister.

Big brother Big sister is a nonprofit whose goal is to help thousands of children, by giving them not only a friend, but someone to look up to.

Executive Director Emily Nance says all the money raised will be put to good use.

"We don't charge any fees for the services that we provide the children in the community.  So we fund raise for that so we can have a big for every little that wants or needs one."

Nance tells us this years theme was superhero, and many came out dressed to impress.

She says, "we have some hearty people who are costumes and it's just a lot of fun. And people have supported us for many, many years."

"They need a helping hand.  They need a romodel and i think that's important to support that."

"I had a little brother growing up and i took care of him and stuff.  It's neat that this charity can go and do things for children who are less fortunate or didn't have a big brother or big sister growing up."

We talked with one bowler who says.. a few hours at the bowling alley can change a life.

"You know, them being able to have a mentor growing up could mean the difference between staying on the streets or them staying in school."

There was also a raffle and door prizes.

Again, all money raised will go straight toward Big Brother Big Sister.
