Bowlers of all ages and skill levels are invited to take to the lanes for a fun-filled evening to benefit Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast.
The annual Bowl-A-Thon event will return with hundreds of people coming out for bowling, prizes, music and camaraderie at bowling centers across Palm Beach County. Teams of five are encouraged to register for $500 with a 10-lane capacity at each bowling alley.
“We bring together companies that support and believe in the mission of Junior Achievement to raise money and awareness to expand our programs locally,” said Claudia Kirk Barto, president of Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast. “We are inviting bowlers at all levels to register as a team and bring their friends, family, neighbors and colleagues out for some fun. With just one team registration, we are able to provide the opportunity for 25 students to learn financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship.”
The Bowl-A-Thon will take place on Oct. 8 and 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Jupiter Lanes (250 Maplewood Drive, Jupiter); Oct. 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Revolutions CityPlace (477 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach); and Oct. 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Greenacres Bowl (6126 Lake Worth Road, Greenacres).
