COLUMBUS, Ind. — The Rev. Bob Langdon rarely asks his congregation at Shelby County's Little Blue River Baptist Church about their giving. But he hardly thinks twice about asking people to financially support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bartholomew County.

That may explain why the Columbus resident has collected the most donations in eight of the past 10 years for the agency's annual MainSource Bank Bowl For Kids Sake fundraiser.

The 2014 version of the event, one in which teams of five bowlers each gather pledges and donations from supporters, will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Columbus Bowling Center, 3010 State St.

Please read Thursday's edition of The Republic for more details.

Don't settle for a preview.
