Correctional officers and staff at Franklin County Prison were cooking for kids' sake Friday in advance of today's Bowl for Kids' Sake benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Franklin County.
"Breakfast of champions," one officer said as another bit into a hamburger about 10:15 a.m. Correctional Officer Bob Fink was working at the gas grill outside while other staff members were setting out the condiments, chips, salads and desserts, or enjoying an early lunch.
"We had a lot of people really chip in and help this year," said records specialist Michelle Davis, noting financial contributions from probation officers, judges and other county employees, along with the homemade pies and cakes.
Fink said the hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, sodas and buns all were donated by companies that supply the prison. Fink said the prison staff wanted to add several hundred dollars to the $1,500 already raised in advance of the ninth annual Bowl for Kids' Sake at Nellie Fox Bowl at 3587 Molly Pitcher Highway.
