Plan to enjoy bowling, pizza and fun when Junior Achievement of Tulsa holds its third annual Masquerade Bowl on Friday at Sheridan Lanes.
Capital One Auto Group is the presenting sponsor of the event, which will offer bowlers a chance to take part from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. Teams are made up of five bowlers, but if you don't have a whole team you can sign up to be a part of the Junior Achievement Team.
Bowlers will be treated to two hours of bowling, shoe rental, a T-shirt, pizza and drinks for raising the $100 per person minimum. That is just $10 each from 10 people.
All fundraising will be done conveniently online. Sign up to participate at tulsaworld.com/jabowl
All proceeds will help provide Junior Achievement programs this school year to more than 49,000 students. JA's portfolio of programs focuses on the areas of financial literacy, workforce readiness and entrepreneurship, combating key social issues like the high dropout rate and the cycle of poverty. It provides students with relevant, age-appropriate, experiential programs that develop student skills and help them realize the power of their potential.
Title Sponsor Capital One Auto Group has been joined by other sponsors: American Bank & Trust, Brian Urich, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Howerton Morris Simpson-Smith, The Linde Group, Matrix Service Company and Northwestern Mutual.
Teams already signed up include American Bank & Trust, Bank of Oklahoma, Eagle Energy, Ernst & Young, Flintco LLC, Grant Thornton, Manhattan Construction, Miratech, NorthStar Technologies, ONB Bank, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Ricoh and Walsh Branding.
Sponsorships are available at several levels from $200 to $2,500. For more information about the Masquerade Bowl, please contact Martha Rongey at email@example.com or at 918-663-2150.
