2019/2020 JA Sock Hop Bowl

The JA Bowl-A-Thon is a fundraising event to supplement the JA Programs. Each semester local business compete for bragging rights to be the top JA Bowl-A-Thon fundraising team. Participants do not have to be a great bowler to be successful. All they need is enthusiasm and a passion for our mission.  Proceeds from this event help fund the delivery of JA economic education programs to approximately 86,000 students in South Texas.  Donations to JA are tax deductible.

How To Get Started in 4 Easy Steps

  1. A team captain gathers a team of 5.
  2. Register team on line
  3. Each bowler secures donations from family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
  4. Bowling teams meet at the bowling center for 2 fun-filled games of bowling,  shoes rental included.  Each bowler receives an official JA Bowl-A-Thon t-shirt, chance to win a prize when participating in games organized by the JA staff and the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets.



Our online system makes collecting donations easier than ever! You can share your bowl-a-thon home page on social media sites or send out emails to your family and  friends both with your own donation link. JA also provides bowlers with an easy to use letter that can be sent to potential donors and sponsors. You can start utilizing all of these amazing fundraising tools as soon as a bowler login is created. Team captains can also view the status of the bowlers within your team and how your team stacks up against the competition.
