OKLAHOMA CITY -- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Oklahoma City teamed up with local media to fundraise money for the Bowl For Kids' Sake program Saturday.

NEWS 9 had a team bowl in the event in an effort to support big brother, big sister teams. Every bowling team hope to raise at least $1000 to support one match for an entire year.

"Right now, we have more than 100 children that are on our waiting list waiting to be matched with a big brother or big sister. So the need is great and this is a way to raise money to fill that void and we can match more mentors with the children," said Adrianna Iwasinksi with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
