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 95,000 students in South Texas.  Donations to JA are tax deductible..

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 the Wild West! You can dress up as a cowboy or cowgirl. Use western themed marketing materials.
