by Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow — A Bowl for Kids Sake tournament was recently held at Meadow Lanes bowling alley in Wellington to raise money for Sumner County Big Brothers Big Sisters.
“This is the only fundraiser they do, and we are in good shape financially now,” said Debi Clark with Big Brothers Big Sisters. “We were in the red, but have remedied that.”
Of the 43 participants, 13 were Argonia Elementary students, who raised $1,436 of the total $17,572 in sponsors and pledges. There were five bowling teams who participated on the day of the event, which had a goal of $30,000.
