2018 JA of Laredo Fiesta Bowl

Saturday, October 27, 2018

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 95,000 students in south Texas including 17,000 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.

This year, as you can see, it's all about Fiesta! You can dress up in your favorite festive outfit. Everybody knows how to dress up for Fiesta! Use Fiesta themed marketing materials.
