Bowl for Kids' Sake helps area non-profit through bowling event

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) - A local non-profit is aiming to raise over $100,000 and bring the community together through the mass appeal of bowling. 

"Bowl for Kids' Sake" is the largest annual fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee. The organization is a member agency of the oldest and largest youth mentoring organization in the United States, consisting of more than 350 agencies nationwide. 

The group's goal is to raise $125,000 to help them match 125 children with a mentor.  Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tenn will host a celebratory party at your local bowling center. Teams register online and raise as much money as possible.
