2019 UNCF Bowling for Scholars Bowl-a-Thon - Indianapolis | UNCF

2019 UNCF Bowling for Scholars Bowl-a-Thon – Indianapolis

The 15th Annual UNCF Indianapolis Bowl-A-Thon is coming! Get a team together and strike one for students in the Indianapolis area. Register to create a team of 4 – 6 bowlers, or join a team. The registration fee is $50 per bowler. Each team member collects pledges from friends, family, or corporations, a minimum of $125 per team.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste, so let’s work our bodies as we bowl, enjoy an afternoon filled with networking, fun, prizes, and most importantly reach our fundraising goals to support deserving college students. Our goal for this year is to raise $50,000 and have 300 plus bowlers to help further our students’ dreams to attend one of UNCF’s 37-member colleges and universities!

The UNCF Bowl-A-Thon is a community fundraising event in which you can recruit family members, friends and co-workers to participate in this non-competitive bowling tournament to raise the much-needed funds to support our UNCF students. The only competition is for the prizes, which go to a team and/or individuals based upon the amount of funds raised.

How do I participate in the Bowl-A-Thon?

  • Register to create a team or join a team by visiting our website: UNCF.org/IndyBowlaThon
  • The registration fee is $50 per bowler. The team captain pays the registration fee when he/she registers the team.
  • Each bowling team must include at least 4 bowlers, NO EXCEPTIONS. Maximum of 6 bowlers per team.
  • Each team is encouraged to raise a minimum of $500-$750 (based on the number of bowlers) total. Therefore, each individual bowler is encouraged to raise $125 or more, by soliciting pledges from friends, family, or corporations. It’s as simple as asking 10 people to donate $12.50!

We encourage each bowler to have friends, family, etc., make pledges on their behalf via their webpage or social media, or a hardcopy pledge form will be made available upon request. 

It is the Team Captain’s responsibility to make sure that all team member’s donations have been collected and turned in, prior to or no later than event day.  All donations should be turned in via the individual webpage, UNCF Office or any Bowl-A-Thon Committee Member.
