ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A few strikes and spares helped raise money for a special cause.

Bowl For a Goal was the mission at the All American Fun Park Tuesday night. People bowled against Special Olympians to raise money for Dougherty County Special Olympics.

Winners took home prizes but the biggest prize is helping special athletes toward their goal of competing for the gold.

"It's just wonderful for them. It will help them go to the Winter Special Olympics and so this money goes for all these special young people and it's just wonderful. They're my hearts," said Lou Johnson with the Albany Advocacy Resource Center.

All American Fun Park donated the use of their bowling alley and proceeds to Special Olympics Dougherty. Organizers hoped to raise at least $2,000.
