Bowlers hit the lanes in Duluth on Saturday, but they weren't just looking for a strike.

Alley cats from all over the area competed in a tournament to benefit the 148th Fighter Wing. Texas Roadhouse and Benna Ford put on the second annual benefit. The purpose was to support the families of Duluth airmen serving overseas.

"It's going toward the families of the 148th, those who have deployed and need extra help," said Air Force Volunteer Jessica Smart. "Especially with the holidays, it's really nice to show how much support really people are willing to give. And then they can come together and have a good time."

All the proceeds went into a scholarship fund set up for high school seniors whose parents have served overseas, either currently or in the past.
