ORRINGTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It's been nearly a month since the deadly Orrington house fire that left a father and his three children dead, but the community continues to show an outpouring of support for the family.

People from all over the state came to show support for the only survivor of that fire, Christine Johnson, at a bowling tournament on Sunday at Family Fun Lanes.

Christine and Ben Johnson Sr. rolled the first balls down the alley. 

Over 100 people signed up to play in the tournament - such an overwhelming number that the alley opened up a second tournament to accommodate everyone wanting to help.

Family Fun Lanes is a place Ben Johnson and his kids used to bowl before the fire took their lives.

All proceeds from the tournaments will go into the Christine Johnson trust fund.
