Bowl-A-Thon: NEON

November 4, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Westbrook Lanes

  Bowl-A-Thon is Big Pals-Little Pals’ signature fundraiser. Each year our supporters come together to have fun and raise money for Big Pals-Little Pals as we change how children grow up! Bowl-A-Thon is the perfect way for individuals to make an impact on our community - it only takes a little bit of effort to raise the money that is vital to our program’s success. We ask that each bowler raise a minimum of $50 or their team raises at least $200 to participate. As a “thank you” for your support and enthusiasm, Big Pals-Little Pals hosts celebratory parties at Westbrook Lanes. No bowling expertise is required, only the willingness to share in our heartfelt and sincere thanks for helping us transform the lives of kids in Columbus. This year, Bowl-A-Thon is glowing bigger than ever! Bowlers will take part in a neon-themed party packed with glow sticks, bright colors and an abundance of festive prizes. Top fundraisers will earn trophies and teams decked out in crazy neon outfits will be entered for the "Best Dressed Award". You don't want to miss this fundraising event - people will be raving about it for years to come!
