About The 5th Annual JGW Bowl-a-Thon!


Only school appropriate behavior will be tolerated at this event. That means that all students and adults must abide by the school code of conduct, or risk being asked to leave without a refund. This is supposed to be a fun and exciting fundraiser for all of us, so please help us out by cooperating with the rules enforced by our helpers and by Academy Lanes.


Show off your bowling skills in an afternoon of fun and excitement!! $20 per student and $25 per adult will get you a game of bowling (shoes included), 4 arcade tokens, a slice of delicious pizza, a drink, and an unforgettable experience!! There will also be some concessions for sale: bags of chips and bottles of water will be sold for $1.00/each, cookies and brownies will on sale as well, and additional slices of pizza will be sold for $2.00 each.

Throughout the event, everyone will have lots of chances to win a prize. For every spare that anyone scores in their game of bowing, they will earn 2 arcade tokens. For every strike that they score, they will earn a raffle ticket to participate in our raffle table. (This does not include any student or adult who uses bumpers.)
There will also be a “Beat Mr. G” tournament throughout the duration of the event, where students will have a chance to bowl 6 balls against Mr. Gariepy and try to beat him. If the student facing him wins, then they will receive a ticket to the raffle tree. For every loss, Mr. G will be taking a water balloon to the face in the parking lot. Everyone who participates in Bowling Night will have a chance to beat Mr. G at least once. After their first shot, each additional try will cost $2.00.
