This year’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser’s theme was “Sports Tailgate Edition.”

People from all over Gallup came out to support Big Brothers Big Sisters Mountain Region on April 27. In an interview with the Sun,  BBBS Mountain Region Managing Regional Director Sarah Piano said 75 teams participated in this year’s event, and as of May 2 the organization has raised over $150,000.

Teams were encouraged to wear sports-themed attire, and to take that however they wanted to. Some teams came decked out in jerseys or the T-shirts BBSS provided, while other teams took things to the max, dressing up as sports equipment.
