Camden — Nearly 130 teams came out to Bowl For Kids’ Sake April 5  through 28 in Northport, Belfast, Waldoboro and Rockport to support local youth mentoring programs in Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties. The annual event, sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets, Camden National Bank and United Insurance, raised more than $77,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine. Proceeds from Bowl for Kids’ Sake will directly support the agency’s school, site and community-based, one-to-one mentoring programs that serve more than 250 children facing adversity in the Midcoast.

The Midcoast bowling fundraiser is among four regional Bowl for Kids’ Sake events held in Kennebec Valley, Androscoggin County and a final event slated for early November in Penobscot County. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ largest annual fundraising effort, expected to raise $250,000 to support 750 children in coastal, eastern and central Maine.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake helps fund local site and school-based programs pairing kids with high school mentors from Oceanside High School, Camden Hills Regional High School, Medomak Valley High School and Lincoln Academy. The program also supports community-based matches between children and adults throughout Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties. Top fundraisers and event supporters will be recognized at a luncheon sponsored by King Eiders Pub in Damariscotta.
