On May 18, 2013 Junior Achievement of North Florida held its first-ever young professionals Bowl-A-Thon. Six lanes at Bowl America were filled by teams from Florida Blue, Jacksonville Young Republicans, Northwestern Mutual, and The Shircliff Society (YP group at St. Vincent’s).
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.
