This Annual Bowl-a-thon was created by Gary Ziegelbauer (former board president – current board member) and Triangle Distributing. The event typically takes place the first Saturday in November – this year Saturday, November 4,2023. The event has the capacity to host 60 teams made up of 4-6 bowlers each. The greatest amount of revenue generated from the event is through sponsorships & bowler pledges.
Bowlers are encouraged to collect pledges and $100 is the suggested minimum of pledges needed to participate in the event. Each bowler receives a packet which includes a Pledge Sheet to record the pledges they are collecting. Though we prefer that pledges are pre-paid there typically remains the need to invoice donors following the event.
The Bowl-a-thon is also sponsored by a number of local organizations and corporations including the Vietnam Veterans of America, Schreiber, Green Bay Packaging, Schneider, Graymont, Green Bay Packers and JBS.
Though a minimum of $100 in pledges may seem high…. the benefits each bowler receives are more than worth it. Each bowler receives:
-A steak dinner sponsored by and featuring JBS’s finest steak. The steaks are cooked onsite on big gas grills - outside in the parking lot. Our Gourmet chefs are actually employees of JBS. There are also free drinks to enjoy during your steak dinner courtesy of Triangle Distributing. The celebration party after features high level prizes to the top 10 pledge raisers!
