Bowlers come together to benefit kids

Dirty Hippies contend with Dragons to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters

A bunch of dirty hippies took on Indians, dragons and even dentists in Payson Saturday — hoping to save the children. Not to mention topple as many pins as possible. By the time the Dragons yielded and the Dirty Hippies bathed, the 10 teams participating in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowling for Kids’ Sake had raised $3,100. The organization that matches children with student and adult mentors relies on such fund-raisers to provide the three part-time employees who make the matches between “Bigs” and “Littles.” Demand for matches has soared as the economy has soured, said Robert Henley. The Payson branch of the national organization has this year matched about 180 children with either a mentor from the high school or with willing adults.
