LUBBOCK, Texas -

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lubbock hosted its annual Bowl for Kids' Sake Saturday.

Businesses, families and students of all skill levels took part in the fun at Whitewood Lanes. This helps raise funds for the agency.

This year's theme was "Calling All Superheroes". You can be a hero, by becoming a mentor.

"We have about 100 kids who are still waiting to be matched," said Daniel Johnson with BBBS. "70 of those are boys and about 30 of those are little girls. We are just trying to get our name out there to let them know that there is a need for mentors in the Lubbock community."

Volunteering takes just about an hour a week. Click here - to learn more.

All of the proceeds raised Saturday will directly benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters.
