Big Brothers Big Sisters annual bowling event

This weekend down at Arctic Bowl, folks will be knocking down pins and making a difference.

It's Big Brothers, Big Sisters’ annual fund raiser: Bowl for Kids’ Sake.

The money they raise supports programs around the state, and this year the goal is to do even better than last year.

There are different ways bowlers raise money – some gather donations, while others pledge money based on their scores.

Last year, one man bowled for seven hours straight.

Others we spoke to that will be taking part this year say it’s all about doing their part to help others.
