Bowl for kids sake

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Lehigh Valley bowlers are scoring a strike for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

AMF Parkway Lanes in Allentown hosted Bowl for Kids' Sake Sunday afternoon.

Money raised will help out a Big Brothers Big Sisters' program that matches thousands of kids in Lehigh and Northampton counties with mentors.

 "Over 30 years now.. we've been doing this Bowl for Kids Sake event. It's our largest fundraiser that we have and we're so excited to be here today at AMF," said Lehigh Valley Chapter Chairman Mark Katkovcin.

More than 200 teams bowled in Sunday's event. Organizers are hoping to raise more than $200,000.
