JA Acadiana 2016 Bowl-A-Thon
Due to unforseen circumstances, our Bowl-A-Thon location has moved to Lafayette Lanes in the South College Shopping Center, 2825 Johnston St., Lafayette. Date and times remain the same.
Our 2016 Bowl-a-Thon will be held Saturday, November 12, 2016 at Lafayette Lanes. If you participated last year, you know what a great time we had. If you didn't participate last year, be sure to sign up and be part of the fun!
Junior Achievement's Bowl-A-Thon is a fundraising event where JA partners come together to raise money for JA student programs in a fun teambuilding atmosphere. More than 125 bowlers will come together for a day of FUN with door prizes, raffles, and awards all for a great cause!
