Bowl for Kids’ Sake raises $70,000


LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – It was a busy day at Star Lanes in Lafayette as residents participated in the 27th annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake.

Four different rounds of bowling took place during the event, which raised about $70,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lafayette.

Sam Klement has been a mentor with the program since moving to Lafayette three years ago. He says the growth he has seen from his little brother is reason enough to stick with the program.

“To see my little brother’s growth is phenomenal, and to see how he’s changed over the course of our relationship has been rewarding. So, it makes it very easy to stick with the program,” said Klement.

Organizers say it costs an average of $1,000 each year to support a mentor and child in their program. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
