It is almost time for the annual Junior Achievement of NE Kansas Bowl-A-Thon. It will be taking place on October 17, 18, 19 and 20th. Westrige Lanes and Family Fun Center is where all the action will be happening over the next 4 days. There are set times on all of those days where you can bowl with your friends
What you need to do is gather 5 people and then start taking donations. You can do that in a number of ways. Chili cook offs, pancake breakfasts, or even silent auctions. The more money you raise, the more chances you have in winning the grand prize….a 55″ flat screen TV!
Every bowler who raises a set amount of money can also receive a Visa Gift Card. It is all based on how much you raise. The minimum amount to raise in order to receive a gift card is $250.
Also this year, JA is having a theme for the event. It is TV Shows. So, they want you to dress up as your favorite characters. For example, all of your team members can dress up like the characters of Friends.
All of this will only cost you $75 per team, which includes ball and shoe rental, two hours of unlimited bowling, a free game of bowling to use later and a free drink.
Junior Achievement has reached more than 28,000 children during the 2018-19 school year, including 12,000 students in the Shawnee County area. The goal of the program is to help educate students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
