The ninth annual Big Brothers and Big Sisters Bowl for Kids’ Sake event, with its theme “In the Country” didn’t raise quite as much money as last year but all of the money that was raised stays here in Terrace to support local Big Brothers Big Sisters  programs.

“We had around 30 participants and raised $6,555 between the event and the auction,” said coordinator-fundraiser Monica Watson of the two hour-event April 6 at the Terrace Bowling Lanes.

“Last year, there were 58 participants and we raised $7,720. In reality it’s a lot more with all the in-kind donations and the actual cost of donated auction items.”

Lots of door prizes were given out and the Terrace Balloon Man made aliens, spiders and all sorts of other awesome creations for the hour he was there, she added.
