Valentines day doesn't have to be lace and roses and chocolates. Maybe you're in the mood for leather and a few drinks and some bowling... all for a good cause of course. This weekend, it's time to get out your biker gear and head to Dales Weston Lanes for Big Brothers/Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake. Executive director Tom Kellenhauser is here with us today. Rebel for a Cause: Bowl for Kids Sake starts tonight at Dale's Weston Lanes. For more information call them at 842-7207 or log on to http://bbbsncw.org
