50/50 Bowling Event

During your Bowling Event, your group sells tickets and keeps 50% of the money from the tickets. Great to raise $500 – $1000 FAST

Bowl-A-Thon

Bowlers collect pledges and the organization pays a small fee for the bowling. Groups have raised between $2,000 & $10,000 in one day with this format

Corporate Lanes Sell

Your group sells individual lane packages for a predetermined price. Package usually includes bowling, shoe rental and some food. The organization pays for the bowling and the food and the remainder of the lane sell money is yours to keep. Groups can raise over $5,000 in one day and this is a great way to raise funds If your group has relationships with many area companies
