What's New With Dollars for Scholars?

Bowl-A-Thon

This scholarship year, we have set a goal for our organization to offer some renewable scholarships to graduating seniors. Currently all of our scholarships are a onetime scholarship that is presented to a graduating senior to use in their Freshman year at college. We have recognized that many students struggle in future years due to finances and even drop out of college. We are looking to raise funds and offer a handful of multi-year scholarship to help the students in our community.  

 We are excited to announce that we will start a new Bowl-A-Thon (Bowling For Dollars For Scholars) event in January to help fund these new scholarships. 

On Martin Luther King Day (January 21) we will hold 2 different sessions.

Session 1 will be for families and run from 10 AM - 1 PM.

Session 2 will be for high school students grades 10 - 12 and will run from 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM. 

 We will also hold another session on Friday, January 25th 

Session 3 will from 10 PM - 1 AM for adults (21+) only!

 Registration cost is $25 per bowler and the number of participants will be limited, based on 16 available lanes and teams of up to 5 - 8 people per session.   

 Each bowler will get a FREE event t-shirt when the check-in if they pre-register by January 7th..

All bowlers are encouraged to seek sponsors and prizes will go out to the individual and teams that raise the most amount of money.   

 We are looking for event sponsors, and lane sponsors for this event. We are also seeking donations of gift baskets, gift cards, etc. for door prizes for the bowlers. 

 If you would like more information about this event, or are interested in registering a team, or possibly being a sponsor of our event, or help us with prizes for the players, please contact us at bowling@bvillescholars.org.
