Bowling Fundraisers are a great way to raise money for your favorite charity, church, sports team or any other group.
Your group can raise $100 to $1000 to a few thousand, depending on participation.

Each bowler would solicit pledges based on the number of pins knocked down during the event, or by soliciting a dollar amount per game. The more people, the more money you can raise.
Example: You receive pledges of $.02 per pin from 10 people, you bowl 3 games of 125 each, total of 375 pins, so each pledge will earn $.02 x 375 = $7.50 x 10 People = $75.00 for your organization. Now if your event had 50 Bowlers, each earning $75.00, - <$500> Expense to the bowling center = your event would raise $3,250
Invite members of your organization, club and friends to come to your bowling event with one half of the proceeds going back to your organization or charity.
Example: If 100 bowlers came to bowl and paid $20.00 each, the bowling center would get $10.00 and your group would get $10.00. Your fundraiser would raise 100 bowlers X $10.00 = $1,000

Another way to raise more money is to raffle off donated prizes. 100% of the proceeds would go to your organization. Sell tickets 3 for $1.00, and draw winners throughout your event. (Check with WA Laws first)
If you can get some large items donated, you might want to try a silent auction to raise money.
A silent auction is where prizes are displayed on tables, with a starting price on each. If a bowler or guest sees an item they would like to have, they bid (write your price down on the pad) the highest bidder wins the prize.
