BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan's Student Volunteer Center, along with Illinois State University, will host Bowl for Kid's Sake on Thursday, Feb. 9, at 9:30 p.m. at Pheasant Lanes Bowling Alley (804 N. Hershey Road, Bloomington).

The money raised from the event will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters, a youth-mentoring program.  Each six-member team must raise $300 to participate.  If students cannot find a team of six, the Student Volunteer Center will help place them with others.

Participants will receive a free T-shirt, pizza and bowling.  Transportation will be provided from Hansen Student Center at IWU.

Teams must sign up ahead of time in the IWU Office of Student Activities.  Wednesday, Feb. 8 is the last day for teams to sign up and turn in money.
