RHINELANDER - Big Brothers Big Sisters hopes to make a strong return to the Northwoods.

The more than $4,000 they raised Friday night will go a long way.

The group hosted Bowl for Kids Sake at Hodag Lanes in Rhinelander.

A team of our own from right here at Newswatch 12 even rattled some pins.

Big Brothers Big Sisters hopes to make the bowling night an annual event.

The group helps match mentors with children needing a role model.

It's coming back after fading in the Northwoods during the last decade.
