Rockport — Big Brothers Big Sisters held its Bowl for Kids' Sake at Oakland Park Lanes in Rockport April 8 to raise money for youth mentoring programs.

The event started at Point Lookout in Northport April 2 continued in the Midcoast until April 10 and 11 at All Play Family Entertainment Center in Waldoboro.

The goal this year is to raise $280,000 with four regional bowling events.

"It is our largest fundraiser and represents about half of our operating budget for the year," Special Events Manager Shawn Doll said.
