29th Annual Bowl-A-Thon
The 29th Annual Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon will take place this year on Saturday,
in the Greater Bridgeport/Valley area and Saturday, November 8
in the Greater
Danbury area. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to get together to have FUN while also
helping a worthy cause. The fundraiser will benefit JA’s economic education programs for
elementary, middle and high school students throughout our region.
And, best of all, your bowling skills don’t matter.....what matters is how well you can raise
money. All the monies our company raises will be used to support in-school and after-
school programs right here in our own community. You can earn fabulous prizes for
yourself, too! Prizes include a variety of gift certificates, dinners for two and more.
We will be joining hundreds of other bowlers in the event, which takes place at the following
bowling centers: Lore’s Lanes in New Milford and Nutmeg Lanes in Fairfield.
Additionally, the ever-popular “Best Dressed Bowling Pin” contest will be held again this
year. Decorated pins are brought to your bowling site on the day and time of your event to
compete with others during your shift only. Past years’ winners have been just remarkable --
from a tall ship’s “carved” masthead to a reproduction Rolls Royce, from a playful circus clown
to a bottle of millennium champagne, all merited awards. Not one looked anything like the
battered bowling pin they were created from. Each member of the team winning first or second
place at all bowling shifts wins a prize. I have pins available for every team so join the fun, dress
a pin and enter the contest.
