MetLife Bowlathon for Junior Achievement of Eastern NC

When: April, 2020 (postponed - TBD)
Where: AMF Pleasant Valley Lanes Raleigh
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Are you interested in having a great time, winning prizes and socializing with your MetLife coworkers?  Add on the feel-good vibe of supporting Junior Achievement of Eastern NC's programs that educate K-12 students about the fundamentals of our economic system, and you'll have a rollin' good time.

It's a "Party with a Purpose"

The goal is for each team of 5 to raise $500 ($100 each member) to fund a JA program for 1 classroom and increase the impact of JA's proven programs by providing experiences to between 20 and 25 students.

Last year MetLife associates raised over $11,300 to support Junior Achievement programs in schools in the Triangle.  With those funds JA of Eastern NC was able to serve over 450 students.  Your support this year will help bring JA's economic education programs to even more students in our community.
