The first of two Bowling for Kids Sake events was held at 6 o’clock Tuesday evening at Frontier Bowl in Cushing. Six teams of five played to raise funds for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program in Cushing. This year marks the first time “bigs” from Cushing High School have been matched with “littles” from Deep Rock Elementary. According to BBBS director Leslie Ridenour it takes approximately $1,000 per child to make and maintain a “match.”

This year’s bowling sponsors include Mercury Mercruiser, Wal-Mart, Stillwater Medical Center, Stillwater News Press and The Hideaway.
