Thanks to the efforts of 1,420 bowlers and 64 WNY Companies, the 2019 JA Bowl-A-Thon raised a record-breaking $174,117! This is the most in the event's 35 year history and we thank all of the donors, bowlers, and outstanding company coordinators that made these results possible for JA students in Western New York! Pictured above are Laura Dolan of Bank of America, JA students from Hamburg High School, along with JA President, Laurie Mahoney.

Get the Ball Rolling for JA Kids!

The JA Bowl-A-Thon, presented by Bank of America, is not only a fun event; it is also JA’s largest annual peer-to-peer fundraiser. Proceeds from the JA Bowl-A-Thon help JA to provide financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurial programs to over 15,700 Western New York students within 161 schools and community sites.

As WNY's largest bowling fundraiser, the JA Bowl-A-Thon has been a corporate moral-boosting event for the past 35 years! During the months leading up to our March events, bowlers create teams, raise funds, all for local JA students!

The average US Household has $15,000 in credit card debt. 68% of all Americans do NOT maintain a budget. A culture of financial illiteracy thrives. Imagine inspiring a generation of young people to be financially capable, prepared and job ready! Together, we will inspire a generation!
