More than 200 people took part in the 26th annual Bowl for Kids' Sake Monday evening at Strike Zone Bowling Center in Huntington.

The event is one of a handful of major fundraisers for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Tri-State, said executive director Patti Price. She said she was hopeful in the amount of money the event could raise because the number of bowlers was about double the amount that participated last, which brought in about $28,000.

"We're really hoping for more than $35,000 this year," Price said.

The money, she said, goes toward daily operations, which includes recruiting volunteers. There are currently 25 children in the Tri-State who need a big brother or big sister.

The organization, which covers the Tri-State, serves between 150 and 200 children through the community and school-based programs, Price said. (more)
