The 2016 JA Winter Bowling Classic was a great success with 128 teams from 11 companies raising $187,516.  CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to our top teams!

All 11 participating companies not only met their fundraising goals, but through the hard work of fundraisers that ranged from a companywide yard sale to a mac and cheese cook off, these companies exceeded their fundraising goals.  Creative competition between teams and support from top leadership at each company ensured the success of this annual fundraising event. 

The JA Winter Bowling Classic concluded with a special recognition celebration at Avondale Brewery on April 14, 2016.  Top companies, teams and individuals were recognized with awards and trophies.  Individual bowlers also won prizes based on the funds they raised, which included an Amazon Echo, Apple TV, Talladega VIP weekend, Birmingham staycation with hotel, dinner and movie passes, an Avondale Brewery gift basket, and a multi-piece toolkit donated by Motion Industries. 

The annual JA Winter Bowling Classic and the recognition events are unique opportunities for companies and individuals to learn more about JA, to participate in fundraising to support JA’s programs, and to engage in fun team building activities.  We are thankful for the teams and companies that raised funds for JA and we look forward to bowling with you again next year!
