The Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Texas had a lot of people working on a Sunday to raise a lot of money.
Bowl for Kids' Sake has grown in the past three years, with this year being the largest with over $30,000 raised and 48 teams in the event.
Newschannel 6 had three teams in the event and we had a blast!
Even if you didn't make it you can still help. There are more than 140 kids waiting for Bigs in the Wichita Falls area.
For more than 100 years, BBBS has been helping to develop youth across the country through the power of safe and positive mentoring relationships. The program is based on a classic one-to-one relationship between an adult and child, where new experiences and mutual activities help the "Little" to become more self-confident, do better in school and enjoy time with a new friend in their life. BBBS works to help broaden children's perspectives and help them learn how to make good choices. Join us! Together, we can start a child on the path to fulfilling their potential - and succeeding in school and life.
