Special Events

Special Events serve as both fund raisers and friend raisers for Junior Achievement of Acadiana, and individual participation and company sponsorships make them successful and enable the organization to reach more young people with the JA experience.


JA Bowl-A-Thon

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!

The Acadiana Business Hall of Fame

The Business Hall of Fame is one of the area's most prestigious business events, with the movers and shakers of the business community recognized for their economic contributions. A portion of the proceeds benefits Junior Achievement of Acadiana to help the organization reach more young people with the JA experience.

The event requires planning and cooperation between JA staff and volunteers to make it successful, and there's a place for you! Whatever your preference may be: participating, serving as a committee member, or as a sponsor, JA welcomes you!
