The modern Stone Age family from the town of Bedrock was seen all over Kemway Lanes in Humboldt from February 5-11.

Big Brothers Big Sisters hosted their annual Bowl for Kids Sake week, allowing participants to dress up in their best Flinstones costumes while helping out a local organization.

Over 200 bowlers participated in the event his year, according to BBBS Development Coordinator Jodie Hergott.

Hergott says that while their totals are still being finalized, a preliminary estimate has them around the $30,000 mark.

The dollar figure is down from years past, according to Hergott, but she says that they are still pleased with the results.

During the week, the organization teamed up with Discovery Ford for a chili lunch as well. Hergott added her thanks to them, as well as Yvonne and the Humboldt District Hospital, and Muenster School.

She says that Brian Hinz, a teacher at Humboldt Collegiate, also built them a trophy for this year.

"We also want to thank Eric and staff at 'Kemrock' Lanes for hosting the event and being a true champion of our agency," Hergott added.
