Teams gathered to bowl for a cause and for kids sake

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati held its most important fund raising event on Saturday afternoon.

Teams gathered at Super Bowl Bellewood in Newport for Bowl for Kids Sake. Each team had four or five members, who each raised at least $100 for a team total of $500. Teams received their own website to help gather donations. Co-workers, family and friends could donate securely online through that site. The funds raised from the event go directly toward matching children with Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers.

Gapper and Rosie Red from the Reds attended the event to show their support, along with the Bengal's Who Dey and Victor Viking of NKU.
