Teams of 4-5 people fundraise or are sponsored by their company to fund Junior Achievement programming through bowling! Top fundraisers and big scorers win prizes. Formerly called JA Achieve-A-Bowl, Play4JA aims to raise $60,000 from participants across northeast Indiana and funds go to give students in our region JA programs. This is also meant to be a fun teambuilding event for you.

How does Play4JA work?
Participants from local businesses and organizations participate as a member of a 4-5 person team. If fundraising, each team member reaches out to his/her family, friends, co-workers to ask for their support through donations and is asked to raise a minimum of $150. For every $25 raised, one more student will be able to experience JA in northern Indiana. Businesses also have the option of becoming a Lane Sponsor for $750 and no additional fundraising is required.
This year we are going back to in person bowling events, because we miss you too and can't wait to get together. If your team would prefer to play the fun trivia as we did in 2020, or bowl-on-your own with vouchers for your team, we are happy to provide those options as well. Trivia is played through Zoom and Kahoot! and participants will only need a phone and computer to play.
Prizes will be awarded to top fundraising and trivia winners.
