About 24 people banded together and raised approximately $2,400 for Big Brothers and Big Sisters Friday night at SherBowl Lanes during the annual Bowl for Kids Sake event.
“It is the best turnout we have had in about three years,” Donna Funk said Friday. “The kids are having a great time.”
SherBowl Lanes has provided a venue for the event for about five years Funk said. Although they didn’t have cosmic bowling glow lights, they did turn off their house lights and illuminated the bowling alley with black lights.
“We have some glow-in-the-dark balls and glow stuff that people like,” she said. “Everyone that participated got to bowl at least three free games. Keeping score in the dark is tricky but the night is not really about competition. It’s for the kids.”
As part of the event, every person that raised over $100 dollars also received a free T-shirt for their fund raising efforts from Big Brothers Big Sisters.
