The winning team turned out to be The Shircliff Society, who received a trophy for their efforts. “It was our first year doing a Young Professionals Bowl-A-Thon, so it is one that will definitely grow!” said Molly Roberts, Special Events Coordinator.

Bowl-A-Thons put the “fun” in “fundraising.” Each team works together to raise money for the benefit of Junior Achievement of North Florida. Bowl-A-Thons provide fun and friendly competition that brings community individuals and companies together to support JA’s mission of providing lessons in financial literacy to youth across North Florida.
