2016 JA of Laredo

Red, White & Blue Bowl

October 22 & 23, 2016

Each year, local businesses get together at local bowling centers to raise funds for JA and have a fun time doing it!  You don't have to be a great bowler to be successful.  All you need is enthusiasm!  Proceeds from this event help fund the delivery of JA economic education programs to approximately 97,000 students in south Texas including 17,500 right here in Laredo.  Donations to JA are tax deductible.

How To Get Started in 3 Easy Steps

  1. A team captain gathers a team of 5.
  2. Each team member secures pledges from family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
  3. Team members meet at Jett Bowl North on their scheduled date & time for 2 fun-filled games of bowling.  Each bowler receives an official JA Bowl-A-Thon t-shirt and shoe rentals

And that's it!  But don't forget to use the Online JA Bowl-A-Thon HQ for better fundraising results.  JA has made it easier than ever to request pledges through email and social media.

You can start sending email requests as soon as you create your user login.  You will be able to keep track of who gave and how much.  Team captains can also view the status of the bowlers within your team and overall totals raised.

Bowl-A-Thon Theme

Each year JA Bowl-A-Thon takes on a theme that makes our bowl-a-thon stand out from the others and, let's face it, more fun.  Use the theme to catch the attention of potential supporters.

This year, as you can see, it's all about American Pride! You can use patriotic colors, stars and the American flag on your marketing materials.  You can download the Red, White & Blue Bowl logo under downloads once you sign up.
