Bowl-a-Thon a HUGE Success!

BAT16Well, it’s official! JA of Lincoln has the best, most fun, most generous friends anywhere! Our annual Bowl-a-Thon has gotten bigger and better every year– but this year topped them all!

On February 26th and 27th, a whopping 318 teams bowled for JA, raising over $106,000 in net revenue for the students of Lincoln! Because of all those bowlers raising all that money, thousands upon thousands of local students in hundreds of classrooms will have their lives impacted by the JA experience. The generosity of the Lincoln community never ceases to amaze and humble us!

We have so many people to thank for this amazingly successful effort, but we want to start at the top, with the person who out-raised over 300 other bowlers. Thank you and congratulations to our highest overall fundraiser– Steve Lane from Bison, Inc. who individually raised $3,000 in total pledges! Coming in second place was Mike Zinniel from Nelnet, who raised $1,270.00. Talk about impressive fundraising!

Speaking of impressive, we also wanted to point out that National Research Corporation led the pack with both the most teams from an organization, and also the most dollars raised by a single organization. Thank you, NRC! Your support means so much to our students and our community!

We also need to send out a big thanks to Parkway Lanes, Hollywood Bowl, and Sun Valley for hosting us again this year! Your continued support allows us to continue to shoot ever higher, dream bigger,

Without further ado, here’s what we know you’re really here for– to find out who gets bragging rights.
