Here’s how it works!
1. Recruit a team of 5 bowlers. (You plus 4 others. Bowlers aged 18 or under are required to submit signed Parent Permission Form to Junior Achievement prior to participating in the event.)
2. Set a fundraising goal of $300 or more per team. Your team is an essential part to the success of JA’s mission. Team pledges are used to cover the cost of programs in local schools. We ask every team to reach its minimum pledge of $300 so we can meet the demand for JA programs. Your team packet will include fun ideas on how to raise money.
3. Send in your team registration form and entry fee of $50 per team (this covers cost of games, bowling ball and shoes for each team member) to reserve your lane.
4. Deposit your team pledges at sponsoring bank or give to the bowl-a-thon coordinator at your site.
5. On the day of the event relax and have fun!

For more information, please contact the Junior Achievement office at: 309-277-3919 or katie.langel@ja.org.
