Albany- The Bellsouth Bowl for Kids Sake fundraiser benefits the Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Georgia.

The bowlers, including Albany's first Big Brother Mathew Palmer, earned hundreds of dollars that will go toward the organization's efforts to provide "Bigs" to Albany youngsters.

"We've been to see Disney on Ice, we've been to Putt-Putt, and there's a lot of things you learn from kids. So, I learn from him he learns from me. So, it's been a positive thing for both of us," says Mathew Palmer, Albany's first Big Brother.

"It all ends up being a real benefit to a kids that just needs a little additional help in life," says Nancy Thornhill of Big Brothers, Big Sisters.

Each team was challenged to raise $500, enough to provide one match for a year.
