BBBS: Bowl For Kids' Sake

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.

About BBBS:
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.
