Bowl For Kid's Sake is a pillar event for Big Brothers Big Sisters Humboldt each year, and this year was no exception.

The week of February 4th to the 9th saw Kemway Lanes in Humboldt decorated with all sorts of classic rock memorabilia, as well as host numerous teams of workers from local businesses.

Each team member raised pledges, and all the proceeds went back into funding for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Jodie Hergott, Development Coordinator for BBBS in Humboldt, went into detail about the underlying importance of the week.

"This is our premier fundraiser. It is truly heartwarming to see how this community embraces the power of mentoring, and we are absolutely thrilled to exist in the community, with great support along the way."

Hergott also made mention of a local school that made a hefty donation this week.

"Muenster school had the Thursday slot. The third, fourth and fifth-grade classes all came together and brought forward a donation of over $4000.00. With the kids being involved, it shows the precedent for a giving spirit is being instilled in the youth that will lead our future."

Bowl For Kid's Sake wraps up this Saturday, February 9th. There were a total of 22 teams this year's event.
