Bowlers spare some time for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A Siouxland organization is hoping you'll spare some time to help them strike it big.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland is holding its eighth Jersey Bowl.

They're bowling on Thursday, April 4th and Friday, April 5th from 6pm - 8pm at Rush Lanes in Sioux City.

The Jersey Bowl is part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America's Bowl for Kids' Sake.

Proceeds from the event at Rush Lanes will be used to support the nearly 500 children served by the agency throughout Siouxland.

"The funds used today will help go to our mentoring recruitment efforts. We have about 84 kids on our waiting list, so we're are in need of mentors," said Teresa Magnussen, Development Director.

Last year, a record $47,000 was raised at the event.
