Big Brothers Big Sisters is holding the "Bowl For Kids Sake" all month at the Thunderbowl off Lafayette Street.

The event is a fundraising opportunity to help Big Brothers Big Sisters match children with mentors.

Organizer Eric Pulley says their goal for this year is over $220 thousand dollars but he says they've struggled to get up to that mark this year.

"Yeah, I think the weather has had some effect.  I will say this year we've had some teams cancel that we didn't think were going to but with that said, we've had some great supporters that show up.  Last weekend, we had some snow, and we had almost every single team show up."

Don't worry, there's still 2 more weekend of bowling left and plenty of time you can still sing up for.

Right now,  there are more than 500 kids in Northeast Indiana who are on the waiting list for a mentor.
