JA Bowl-A-Thon is a fun event and is one of JA's biggest fundraisers! Thousands of participants from more than 50 companies bowl each year to help JA provide financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship programs to local students. The donations from the event will help bring JA programs to over 75,000 students during the 2016-2017 school year.
WHAT: The Bowl-A-Thon is more than just a single day event. It is an entire season! It has branched into nearly 45 events from January to August. Each company has the opportunity to select their own date, time and place to best fit their schedule. If they desire, smaller companies can choose to partner with other neighboring companies and bowl at a divisional Bowl-A-Thon set by Junior Achievement.
HOW TO PLAY: Being a part of Junior Achievement’s Bowl-A-Thon is simple. Just select a coordinator to organize your company’s involvement in the event by acting as a liaison with Junior Achievement and by recruiting team captains who in turn recruit 4-5 other bowlers. Then, each bowler begins to secure pledges on a flat rate basis. Each bowler is asked to raise a minimum of $50 in pledges. Prize eligibility begins with a $50 pledge.
WHAT JA DOES FOR YOU: We make it easy! Not only do we schedule the event with the bowling center, we staff your Bowl-A-Thon! Count on us to handle the money, distribute prizes and make sure everyone has fun! Each coordinator will also be equipped with easy-to-use Bowl-a-thon tips.
REGISTRATION: When registering online, please note that only companies who have selected a bowling date will show up on the list of teams. If you and your company have not played in the past, please contact a Junior Achievement Special Events Manager, Brittany Matthews. No previous bowling experience is required! It’s simple and fun for everyone. It’s also a great way to mix and mingle with fellow employees, family and friends while raising funds for today’s youth.
This year's theme is "Around the World."
